Today's drawing is in pen, my favorite purple grading pen to be exact. Purple, such a non-offensive color when you're critiquing work. Unlike its predecessor, red, purple is the kinder, more gentle friendly grading pen that says the negative things red used to say, but with a smile on its face. Perfect for today's sensitive generation. These irises live just outside of my entrance to school. They are the last fresh thing I see and smellof nature before I begin each day. Sigh.
