I adore drawing goat willow (salix caprea). The subject is particularly fulfilling to create in ink. My blue goat willow, hand painted postcard was created in blue drawing ink on textured, Hahnemuhle card.
Inspired by Japanese sumi-e painting, this simple ink drawing is part of my preparatory drawings for larger ink artworks. The hand-painted postcard was created using a small Japanese calligraphy brush.
This original one-off botanical ink drawing is signed and dated by the artist.
