To create this, the students drew a composition that was crowded with various examples of foliage using oil pastels on white paper added light and dark values to each leave. Nest, they created a background and carved veins into each leaf. Finally, they covered their entire picture with black india ink. Once it dried, they washed off the excess ink that covered their oil pastel drawings but allowed the ink to soak into blank areas. Here are their results.
