eucalyptus leaves

after spending a lovely two days "urban hiking" through san francisco, i was reminded of how striking eucalyptus trees are. i've always loved the layering of the bark, but today was especially drawn towards the shapes/colors of the leaves on the ground.

i began with this sketch:

i anticipated coloring the leaves in photoshop. what i love is the different shades of brown/yellow/red/green that can be found on each leaf, and wanted to highlight this in my pattern. 

and after the quick base of color, i attempted to further paint the details of a few of the leaves:

i will continue to work on this but hoped for some feedback.
