Flowers for Easter

Some tulips for spring and Easter weekend that I originally bought for Lesley's birthday. I drew the sketch with my new Pilot “Young Rex” (dumb name) fountain pen with mixed Waterman black and brown ink, and then watercolor over that. I didn't realize how architectural the vase is until I just looked at the picture again. I like the contrast of round forms against square ones. I guess that's why I like urban landscapes.

I got into thinking about forms while working on a book of the woodcuts of Olive Jensen Nordby, a local artist who focused on Norwegian subjects. In an interview in the book, she talks about doing a print of a cabbage and really appreciating the round forms. I'll post the cover I designed when the book is officially released next week.
