So, I'll just use this time to post a couple of sketches I've done. Flowers. The hellebore grows in my garden and is the only thing blooming this time of year. Well, it and a viburnum bush that has tiny nondescript flowers. This is my third sketch of the hellebore. The first was done from a distance, the second in a vase, and this one when I took it out of the vase, cut off the end, and laid the flower on the table.
Then this morning, after exercising I stopped at the grocery store where a vast array of primroses was available for sale. I purchased a blue one, brought it home and proceeded to sketch using walnut ink. I LIKE walnut ink.
