It’s hard not to be discouraged by the news on several fronts these days. Drawing, if only a scribble, is a great escape. Thanks to Shari Blaukopf for starting the conversation. Check out her blog post here.
During some unusually warm November days I did a couple of quick sketches: the goose in the barn across the road and a visit to our local winery. (Cream paper in a small sketchbook, ink and neocolour II water soluble crayons)
Below is yet another close-up of something from the garden: Egyptian onion, or walking onion. The flower tops produce these clusters of small bulbs which cause the stem to fall over thus allowing these bulbs to set roots and start growing a new plant. One of them had been sitting so long indoors (waiting to be drawn) that it started sprouting. Can you see the wee green tips? All the days cares faded away while I studied and drew this.
