Spring arrives! The first crocuses popped up by the Metro stop, so I had to make a quick sketch. Four weeks until the cherry blossoms.
One last image from Shinjuku Gyoen. This is a popular destination in Tokyo for the Spring Cherry Blossom Festival.
I had a day to walk around Tokyo on a nice but cold day. This is Shinjuku Gyoen, what was for a while the Imperial Gardens. Drawing this, I ran into the interesting problem of how to draw realistically bushes that are pruned to be round blobs. I tried fading out the texture but can’t say it totally solved the problem.
Orchid in front of dark window. Water-soluble graphite pencil. I’m finally becoming happy with the larger area washes using just the graphite and waterbrush.
