Ombra, Leaf

I've been working on this one for a couple of days now. I think its getting to a good place. The Shadow (ombra, in Italian) needs a bit more smoothing out at the top. I am torn whether to put in the shadows that the leaf casts down below or if I like it kind of oddly stark.

Curled Leaf with Shadow, 2011
Watercolor on paper
14" x 11" ?
final size TBD once I determine the proper scale of the shadow compared to the leaf and blank area below.
It's all about proportion people!
