I finished a new large . It's probably the most detailed drawing I ever made.

The main figure in the drawing is based on a picture I took at the Gion Matsuri in some years ago. It is a dancer performing the old Japanese court dance "Ran-Ryo-O".

I used Derwent Inktense and Conté Aquaralle pencils as well as watercolour paint (various brands). The paper is Arches 56cmx76cm 300g/m2 rough watercolour paper.

Holy snappin turtles, my ears are frozen! But I went outside and caught this little statue ... monument... sculpture... thingy.. with the morning colours. No editing except in an online editor to up the saturation some. The black blotch at the top is a passing duck!

This week's second #FridayFilm was:
Leave Her to Heaven (1945)

Published author Richard meets Ellen while both are on vacation in New Mexico. Within a few days Ellen proposes to Richard, and 2 days later they marry. Very soon their marriage has some extreme twists & turns.

This is a classic #FilmNoir even though it is shot in glorious Technicolor. Gene Tierney is one of the meanest femme fatales to ever grace the screen.

This film is not to be missed.

It turns out, some plants can hear! Their flowers can hear the sound of insects buzzing around, and they react by sweetening their nectar to make pollination more tempting.
