Rheum (Rhubarb)

Graphite 2010

This Rhubarb leaf was drawn in the heat of the summer, with temperatures in the high 30s. Nothing much had survived this hot, dry summer except for the tough, robust Rhubarb. The leaves had been chewed by insects, but its leaves stood proud despite the heat. The strong patterns of the veins and leaf ribs contrasted well with the delicate seed pod.
