GrassesThe first twelve in an ongoing series of miniature gestural drawings of ornamental grasses bent over in the snow and cold.  Each measures a mere 1.25 x 1.75 inches (teeny-tiny).  Unlike my more detailed botanical pieces, these works are studies in simplicity and efficiency of line.  Original art for only five dollars?  Yes, at .

These are my first two attempts at drawing with ink and brush.  It’s much better for rendering feathers than my usual metal nibbed pen.  I might just stick with this method for a while…

Each drawing is bird-sized (about 3×4 inches).
