Agave - The edge of shadow

The Edge of Shadows, 9x12" Colored Pencil on black paper

Please click here to find out more about this colored pencil painting
with its 2 options - one matted and one unmatted. 

This came from reference pictures I took when visiting Huntington Gardens in Pasadena, CA.  The beautiful shadows and sunlight hitting the leaves were especially startling just after a sudden shower. 
I was intrigued by the interesting edges and how the shape of them was repeated in the shadows as well.   I am always intrigued by the beauty of botanical subjects.  This one attests to my interest!
