Maple tree buds – continued

I’ve continued drawing the maple tree buds out in front of our house. A few weeks ago, I posted them as they were just popping out, all red and berry-like.

In this update, the red covering has fallen off and the bundled, silvery-green leaves are emerging. There are some beautiful red highlights both in the branch and the buds. This was done in pen and ink and colored pencil.
