In the Moss garden by flowerelfe
This is the newest addition to my series of pen and ink "Fantasy Garden" paintings. I started this series back in 1998 and it's gradually been evolving as I add to it over the years. I enjoy drawing stylised plants often from cones, ferns, mosses and lichens and populating the "gardens" with creatures, some half-hidden among the plants. This one was completed a couple of days ago (July 2008).
These drawings are made using fine-nib technical pens on watercolour paper which I first mottle with acrylic ink spodges...it's fun driping ink onto damp paper and watching it "bloom" or blowing the droplets with a straw.
