Apple blossom

A busy day at work today, so not much time for drawing, but I'm not going to give up on EDM on the second day, so I found time to do a quick sketch of the apple blossom that is out in our garden at the moment. Actually, this is growing on a small tree that has a lot of meaning for my DW. It is a graft taken from a tree planted by her father not long before he died. It's still only large enough to get a handful of fruit, but it's growing well and has lovely blossom at this time of year. This was done using Inktense pencils.

This is a very attractive little painting. It reminds me a bit of Japanese wood block prints, and I like its elegant simplicity. One of the most fundamental things to learn in this sort of art is knowing which bits to leave out!

Yay for Inktense! This is so pretty and delicate.
