Greens are difficult...

(5 green leaves in colored pencil  and 5 home works, art by Barbara Weaver)

... and leaves are tricky.
Botanical Illustration program at Denver Botanic Gardens offers frequently classes on how to handle the green color, both in watercolor and in colored pencil. On these classes we also focus on the leaf structure: margins, texture and the venation. Variegated and translucent leaves are typically getting very special attention. You can see some photos from the recent Leafy Greens class by clicking here.
