This time I got my inspiration during a walk in the park, where swans & ducks are showing off their little ones. The scene below reflects this lovely moment of nature, but the inks were chosen because I like their soft tones, which reflect the softness of the scene. The inks are kyo-iro Soft Snow of Ohara and Stone Road of Gion. They are the only ones I own, but I like them a lot, and plan to lay my paws on the other ones from this inkmaker.

Very interesting choices, namrehsnoom. Not the usual options for Spring in the northern hemisphere, but your delightful scene does have a softness to it.

 

You made me rethink my combination... ;)

I went with the traditional combinations, after all. There is a row of linden trees down our street here in Indianapolis, and from my window, I can see the fresh leaves —our Spring was very late this year.

 

The paper is Koh-i-Noor "Paper for Pens". Very smooth, but some usually well-behaved inks have a tendency to feather on it. :(

It had to be something else than flowers; I already did flowers twice this year!! This thing was looking better in my mind than it does on paper... Oh well I guess this is what imagination is for.

Lots of inks; some of them I submitted in earlier combos (sorry)

The paper is a drawing/sketching paper - that seems very absorbent and prone to feathering. Not great but it didn't affect the result too much.

I picked three inks for flowers and grass:

The "drawing" is of course, not botanically accurate...

 

Thanks, LG! Waka Uguisu sample added to my wishlist! :D

I also found this months brief quite a difficult one, especially because everyone else is a better artist than I am.

 

So I went out into my garden and picked the best flowering shrub that I currently have in flower for May. Pieris:

Thank you :-)

 

Believe it or not, in reality the actual colours of the sunset were much more vivid than the inks I used. But if I’d tried to sketch the colours true-to-life it would have looked ridiculously fake!

I think I've seen this plant before, but I didn't know what it was called. A great choice of colours! Meadow is one of my favourite greens.

I'm surprised that May's theme seems less popular than the others so far. I had trouble picking inks because there were so many to choose from.

      @Ruaidhri This was an absolutely wonderful bit of writing, and I hope that you're able to maintain the style once all of the medications are out of your system.  Take care and recover quickly!

      These comments make me sad as I sympathise with Ruaidhri, having great difficulties in being taken seriously. Or being taken at all (no off-colors jokes, please!) In spite of overwhelming odds,  Ruaidhri -now I know how to spell it- made a courageous decision and stuck to it. I was diagnosed with a similar growth in a place I will not reveal. Oh, well, if you insist it was Mount Sinai Hospital. But I firmly intend to walk in Ruaidhri's footsteps, if he will let me, on my next visit to Dublin.

      Reminds me of the day my associates and I developed a cure for all mankind's ills and mistakenly wrote it down with invisible ink.

      Was that the end of the Laboratory? Somehow the exactitude created a fully destructive device, as always!
