These flowers were blooming in a neighbor's yard. I did some sketching on site and took a few photos. This piece was inspired by one of the photos. I used Shizen pastel paper. I like it because it forces you to get it down and done in as few passes as possible. Another advantage is that it comes in multiple colors.
Lately I have felt a lot of freedom with my art. It's for me and my joy. More like my playground.
