a sycamore leaf & fickle Polar Brown ink

Yesterday we found a few ginormous sycamore leaves blown into our yard --- but we have seen no sycamore trees in the neighborhood. Not sure how far these have traveled.

Noodler's Polar Brown ink is fickle! Most of the time I draw with it using an extra fine nib and it is waterproof when I add watercolor washes. A few days ago, when I drew rocks to test inks, it had just enough "bleed" to get a raw sienna type wash. I wanted that effect on the sycamore leaf . . . and it decided to be waterproof again.
