|The Flat Garden @ The Japanese Garden|
pen & ink in a Stillman and Birn Epsilon sketchbook
The Flat Garden creates an ideal subject for pen & ink. The great expanse of white sand makes a perfect contrast to the other features — wooden railing, diverse greenery, and characteristic stones. The challenge is to add enough contrast to the greenery to make it look diverse.
While doing these sketches I recall the memory of the garden in a very Zen fashion. Peace returns.
