irises, a photo by Bricoleur's Daughter on Flickr.
Ah, irises! It always takes me by surprise when they are blooming, especially because I always seem to forget to buy and plant bulbs for them. They are my mother's favorite flower. She has two large paintings of irises hanging in her cafe. I drew these quickly in my sketchbook as I waited while the boys walked their friend to his apartment door last night.

|Ink Wash Drawing: Our Neighbor's Pine Tree|
This week, I picked the Ink Wash drawing of our neighbor's pine tree. It is moody and dark and it is from the Every Day in May group that I belong to on Facebook and at Flickr. It is a great group, which I learned about originally from a blog I follow for watercolor inspiration by Liz Steel, aka Boromini Bear.
Every Day in May (the draw something free assignment revisited) Out doing errands this morning and waiting for updates from my father-in-law's surgery (which went well-Hooray!)

Catching up on Every Day in May's daily drawing list. free coffee from Starbucks, my lock at the pool locker room, the oldest thing in the fridge is probably some nori for making sushi, my fingerless gloves which thankfully it is finally warm enough to not wear, a pillow on the couch, and a creepy mouse that keeps eating (or hiding) all the dog's food at night.

This was from the first exercise in Ivan Brunetti's Cartooning book. Drawing the same object in 4, 2, and 1 minutes, then in 30 seconds and 15 seconds. All about paring down, and getting to a good hyroglyphic state with your cartooning skills.
