Young Red Maple – Acer rubrum

A young Red Maple tree in one of the lakeside parks in Toronto, seen against a pale, overcast sky. I used liquid frisket to mask around the leaf masses so that I could render them using loose wet-in-wet and a variety of sponging techniques. I thought this contrasted in an interesting way with the delicate contours of the bark, rendered in graphite and subtle washes.
