Ok, well... I was having some calligraphy withdrawals. This was just about a 10 minute piece. No layout-- just write---and no warm up either (I can tell).
And I have to admit--the flower is a stamp. I lay on magic marker color and spritz with water then embellish with a sepia pen. It's a fun little instant gratification thing which I like.
I tried to paint another pear today but failed miserably. I ended up just laying on color with a pallet knife to make an abstract. That's actually very fun.
Maybe I will photograph it and post it later today.
