@endymion — Thanks! It’s color pencils. I looked at a lot of references to get the colors as accurate as I could. I started with the sidewalk texture (spots) to make a resist, then went over the whole card with some various greys and some light brown and rubbed it into the paper with a tissue. Did the same with the leaves… drew them in and buffed them into the paper to blur them and then went over the leaves again with pencils (greys and browns) until it looked right to me.
