Another project I did for Pinnacles National Monument - this time they wanted me to illustrate some of the common oaks found in the park to help visitors identify them.
There are 6 species found in the park, but these are the most common. The two others not included are the Canyon Live Oak and the Interior Live Oak.
To make this I had to hike around and take all my reference photos (more than 300!) and collect some of the best looking specimens. The leaves and acorns are actual size, and the trees are relatively scaled to each other.
I hope they like it!
