Cannas and Periwinkles

After a morning of working in the cellar garden and under the pecan tree, I am painting in the rain from my covered front porch!  With hot hibiscus tea and the pattering rain, I start with the ink work.  I am spare with the water soluble ink today.  It can bleed far beyond its boundaries on a rainy day!  That cotton rag paper really absorbs water from the air.  So, I use India ink for the sketching, filling in the color with my watercolor confections.  It has been a long time since I sat on the porch and enjoyed the rain.  What a welcome break in the midst of a busy day!  Painting number 2457 in 2457 days.
