This is an ink drawing after a photograph posted a while back by my friend, Pam Patchet. I don’t know what the blossom is, but the way it collapsed has great lines and form. I haven’t done any ink sketches for a while; I must be feeling better if I’m willing to tackle one. I don’t really understand why but I especially love sketching with ink. When I am really feeling better, I’d like to re-do this as ink and wash; I think I would be better able to capture the subtle shadings. And it ought to be an excellent subject for watercolor, too.
