for periscope no. 4 i drew some opening calladium blossoms with one of my favorite water soluble pens, the pilot varsity. colored ink sketches make me happy. especially when they bleed into the watercolor. that surprise mix of ink & watercolor is just fabulous!
i’m afraid i’m not improving at reading comments. egads! eventually i suppose i’ll figure it out. another difficult thing is not knowing the names of people who are watching. i recognize some of your handles, but unless your name is part of it i have no idea who anyone is… maybe next time i’ll flip through a sketchbook or something. flipping requires less focus than drawing and i may be able to carry on some semblance of a conversation. we’ll see. don’t hold your breath.
i took iphone pics of a variety of blooming plants this sunday at the LA county arboretum & botanic gardens. if you live in the LA area it’s worth a trip. especially now when the aloes are in extravagent bloom.
the blossoms on this aloe look like sunflower seeds!
such a display!
what a pleasure to walk around admiring everything.
what’s new in your winter world? do tell, i’m all ears…
