I was actually going to make a better tutorial on "how to draw a fern", but I don't even know if this lesson will be liked so I just made a fern leaf instead. Drawing plants is probably a very concept to draw because they can be used as subjects for still life sketches. Making this fern is going to be fun. I don't know about any of you, but I think drawing house and outdoor plants is interesting because they are so easy to recreate. They are also good objects to practice on. Anyways, enjoy drawing a fern, I will be back soon.
