UNKNOWN FLOWERING TREE - CLICK TO ENLARGE
Here is the finished drawing from my last post, and my first drawing using an eye patch. Well, I of course didn't use an eyepatch for the whole drawing. I only used it when drawing the preliminary sketch through the grid.
I found this specimen on a walk to the park. I have never seen anything like it before. At first glance, it looked like a conifer of some sort, but on closer inspection, the tree was flowering. So those pine cone-y looking things are in fact fruits and the things that have a remarkable resemblance to needles are actually leaves! If any of you know what this is, please let me know. Meanwhile, I'm going to look through books to see if I can identify it.
