These are the last of the zinnia and marigold from the deck. There are a few mums and pansies out there now. The garden (I use the term loosely) was great this year. I don't know, it seemed to thrive on benign neglect.
Drawing and sketching, however doesn't work that way. I bought the book One Drawing a Day by Veronica Lawlor, whose work I love, and hope to work my way through it. I'm looking to loosen up and just do it and enjoy it. I think doing a quick lesson a day will help. This is lesson 2, working with dip pens and ink. I never use dip pens but I really had fun with this. I couldn't resist adding color!
