Leaf skeletons

I've just started (like just at 11.30 at night) on a new lino cut. I found a fairly robust leaf skeleton a few weeks ago, I think it was a laurel leaf in a past life, and have done a drawing of the main outlines and veins. Based on that I've drawn out a basic shape to work within on a small piece of lino, about 6" x 4". I'm hoping it'll look a bit more as if I know what I'm doing with this one... I'll proof it after I've carved one side of it to see if it's working ok.
