Decaying leaf

I'm doing volunteer work for our nature center's newsletter. They asked me to read one of the articles that will be in the newsletter and do a piece based on it. The article mentioned leaves decaying on the ground. I did a watercolor of a leaf earlier this year that was rough enough looking I thought it would work as a decaying leaf.

 

The newsletter is in black and white, so I put the scan of my painting in Photo Shop Elements, turned it to black and white, and adjusted the contrast. This is what I got.

 

Here's the original painting
