Late Easter

A very quick funsize sketch, made before this Easter flowering cactus (rather late) bursts into bloom. I enjoyed making a cypher of squiggles and ovals to describe the foliage, rather than being too literal. The buds of colour help enormously to breathe a little life into this picture.

Funsize cactus ink & tombowFineliner, with accents and shadow put in using Tombows.

  1. Ooh! Love the expressive technique. Lovely lines.The subject matter makes for a nice composition, too. And the black & white with a touch of red = elegant simplicity. Noice. Making me want to get inky with it. I’m probably too lazy, though, so i’ll just continue to appreciate the artistic efforts of others such as yourself!
