Stripped Down in tinted charcoal

This week's Illustration Friday prompt is farewell.

Goodbye, winter gear. Too bad, so sad. Don't come out again until next November.

Of course, since this is Alberta it'll probably be out again next week.

Sunflower Scaffold in tinted charcoal and Derwent Metallics

This week's Illustration Friday prompt is train.

I like to train morning glories up my sunflowers. I like the way it looks, and since I'm container-gardening on a balcony the two-for-one in the same space is a nice bonus.

Now, if only spring would make a slight thought about appearing...

A couple of work things

What you're seeing here is Early Blue Violet (Viola adunca) above, and Prairie Crocus or Pasqueflower (Pulsatilla patens) below.

These doodles aren't terribly exciting since they were designed more or less as clip art for in-house publications. With any luck there may be a few more of them if I get focused (or at least more focused than I've been managing lately) this weekend.

This weekend.

Which I'll be spending at home rather than at my father's place.

Because the impending SNOWSTORM means that the roads may be absolute crap.

Yep. This is the closest I'm going to get to any sort of spring flower for the next while, I'm afraid.

Both of these artistic wonders are Inktense base with Graphitint details. I didn't bother to wash the Graphitint, so I guess I could have just said coloured graphite and saved myself the extra typing...

Ah well.

Incidentally, I really need to get myself a more purplish Inktense pencil if I'm going to keep doing spring flowers. This fuchsia isn't really cutting it, but I figured that it would do for what I want to use it for. They're mostly recognisable at any rate, and I guess that's what counts.
