Pin Oak Study
We have a variety of oaks on our property - burr oak, red oak, pin oak - and each leaf is just a little different. You can tell this species by the sharp tips at each leaf point. I picked a green one that was barely changing and as a bonus found the little stick with a couple leaves still attached and knew it would be great to include. These turn ochre then a deep burnt sienna giving my yard a wonderful new color on top of the green grass. The fun part for me, making each study different than the last yet interesting in composition. So far, I think I like them all!
