To start out the week I found an old Magnolia leaf on the ground when I was running this morning. I was intrigued by the tip of the leaf and the dip of the end of the stem. Below are the sketches from the leaf with variations on both.
I originally settled on sketch 15 but could not figure out the design for the stamp, ultimately starting over with new sketches and ending up with sketch 21 that is reminiscent of the tip of the leaf but looking at it now looks like fallopian tubes. Weird.
Below are the different stages of the stamp as I am working on it.
