Flower Breaks

I took little 10 minute breaks while I was working today to just play around and see what I could come up with while drawing the same thing multiple times. Here are my various interpretations of a flower arrangement. Just a fun little exercise!

Haiku: Wisteria in Bloom

草臥れて 宿かるころや 藤の花

Exhausted, I sought
a country inn, but found
wisteria in bloom

This is an illustration of a haiku for a show at the Children's Book Fair in Bologna this summer.
