EveryDay Matters April 20

The mulberry paper is lovely for drawing natural objects, since wherever you rest your pen a second, a little jog appears, very welcome, and the color and texture just lend themselves. Here's a houseplant, no idea what its name is, gift from the friend of a friend and none of us have identified it. Whatever it is, it is a wild grower, casting its seeds in all the surrounding pots so I have many offspring of this plant.

Then I did an ink and wash drawing of the bedroom closet and surrounding area, and here the Caran d'Ache used as a wash worked for me.

Glad I visited here today - always am so pleased by your watercolours.

There's not too many women I know who would be willing to show a drawing of their bedroom closet!!
