One last try for the cherry blossoms on the waterfront. Still blooming away. But there's a rain of petals now, and a tinge of green as the leaves are starting to come out.
On this one I was trying for pen and ink for the tree and rocks, and for serendipitous splatters for the blossoms.
Granted, it took a while to find random splatters that I liked.
This was going to be a value sketch.
But the sun decided to leave us at this point and all of my shadows disappeared.
Finally, I remembered the brush that I'd brought to experiment with. I used it to put down the vertical lines of the tree, and then used my finger to smudge in the faint horizontal lines of the bark.
