Bonsai!

This is a drawing of a Japanese acer bonsai tree that I took a photo of at a flower show. Like the other drawings I made, I use a lot of gradient and blurring effects.

Since the leaves in the photo were quite small, I had to refer to a couple more photos of the leaves of the same species.  Here is a sample of the drawings I made for the leaves, which I then scaled down and added on to the tree.

I also used the Geometry Add and Subtract tools to draw the pot. They make drawing circular and curvy items very easy.
