Colour from the Season - Rhododendron leaves

These leaves were all collected from the ground, under a gigantic leaved Rhododendron. The leaf I've drawn was twelve inches long, glossy green with furry underside in the darker of these shades of brown green and orange. I'm not a fan of Rhododendrons - but was completely captivated by the architectural and (colour) variations of the leaves of this one...
