lotus leaves - quick sketch

liquid sumi ink on watercolor paper,
23.5 x 19cm (approx 9.25 x 7.5 inches)

I recently passed through Shinobazu-ike in Ueno Park and had a chance to do a quick sketch of the growing lotus leaves with my portable sumi-e brush-pen/waterbrush setup.
Just managed to catch a couple of leaves before it got too dark and then I had to dash off to work. (Apologies for the badly angled photo).

The lotus season will hit full swing during July and August and, time permitting, I hope to spend a lot of time out there at the pond doing more sumi-e style sketches and working in oils.
