Large seedpod

I started this a while ago, and finished today during a break from my project.
The seeds fly well, particularly in line with a fan
I'm not sure what kind of seedpod it is kapok?.......

Update. I have just found out it is the toxic Strophanthus divaricatus 羊角拗, 


















watercolour paper 56cm x 38cm

Everyday in May 29
Draw something in your favourite colour.........red is one of them,
but do understand why when I ask some kids this question they say "rainbow"
Colour to me means different things, for different purposes

Everyday in May 27

Draw something dangerous, a quick centipede.
We have a few venomous snakes over here but accidents happen when people scare them or don't see them.......these (not so ) little critters seem to enjoy biting

Everyday in May 26

Draw a bench....Lamma Ferry pier


























Not an inspiring bench in itself but a lovely view.
I messed this one up by using the ink pen...should have been patient and waited to mess it up after scanning

Everyday in May 24/25

Draw a cat, I'm doubling up on two days of challenges.
When I was small I always wanted a cat but my Dad was strictly a dog man. Here is Pearl, who moves around rather a lot for a cat that sleeps all day.My other cat was featured in last years EDiM.
Now to paint or not to paint? I want to do a painted version to show her colour and markings

Everyday in May 17 soap

EDiM 16 soap...my daughter's soap with loofah inside....in old soap dish
Did some of the detail with a blue ink pen I found at home, big mistake....still love a paintbrush, much softer and wanted to add highlights but now know the pen isn't waterproof... I thankfully did a scan before this.

Everyday in May 16

EDiM 16...Draw a stapler....well ....staples were more interesting, ( can you have visual typos ?) unfinished, will post finished version tomorrow. Sketched it out , then knocked over the box........would be more interesting to draw the untidy version of staples hastily and badly thrown back in the box (but life is too short and I have a bar of soap to find
