Once you have logged in to the Lesson Library, download and print the Maple Leaf drawing.
You will notice that some of the lines represent the outline of the leaf and its veins, while others outline the shadows around the leaf.
TIP: The light source for the image is from straight on, which is why you see shadows on both sides of the leaf. As you know, when leaves dry in the fall, they tend to curl so our leaf is not lying flat, and the shadows indicate this to the viewer.
