The last mushroom drawing is another from Belarus, a strange pair with speckled stems and orange caps. I used Fabriano pastel paper in a soft yellow and Derwent drawing pencils that have lovely creamy leads in earthy shades with some greens and greys.
Here is the final collage put together on a piece of pale green paper and framed in forest green wood.

My Belarussian friend has sent me lots of photos taken in her local forests and I'm having a lot of fun drawing them. This is the first attempt in my mi-tientes sketchbook using white gel pen and Derwent line painters with a bit of coloured pencil in the background.

Most of our circle's trees are still holding on to their leaves and green. In fact, recent rains seem to have given them fresh life. But I was able to find these interesting leaves yesterday during a morning walk.
