Inktober 10, 11, 12.

I am happy to be able to say that I m still going strong with inktober even though some prompts are getting really challenging.

Inktober 10 Snow. My daughters are enthusiastic snowboarders so I didn’t have a shortage on action shots to choose from. I quite like this one for its typical snowboard posture. Ink wash and prera fountain pen in Stillman and birn sketchbook.

Hyacinths in oil.

I don’t have hyacinths in the garden, but I bought some forced bulbs and they ere just beautiful at their peak.I sketched them in watercolor, but struggled. So I left it for a while. Slowly but surely the blooms began to topple over, like hyacinths do and they started turning brownish in their color. no waiting anymore, I had to paint or lose them.
