35. Breadfruit Leaf

Breadfruit Leaf, watercolors on bamboo paper, 2011

I traveled recently to the Caribbean island of Dominica, a small (formerly British, formerly French) colony in the Lesser Antilles.  Breadfruit trees are planted everywhere we went on the island, and I was fascinated by the shape & texture of the leaves of the breadfruit tree (the breadfruit fruit itself is very tasty roasted over an open fire–boiled is a little stodgy & boring.)

This was just a quick watercolor sketch based on the shape & veining of the leaves.
