Blossoms



A wind storm blew down a small bunch of plum blossoms and left them on the sidewalk for me to pick up.  I couldn't resist bringing them inside to draw.

I learned a new hand, Weaver Writing, at the Westcoast Calligraphy Society the other evening.  I tried it out here with a pencil because this drawing paper won't take pen and ink.  But you can do a "pressure and release" technique with a pencil that resembles the thick and thins of letters done with a pointed pen.
