Pay no attention to the Cheshire Cat or anyone else in Wonderland for that matter. Noooooo!
These absolutely non-edible mushrooms suddenly appeared in our lawn today after a soft, intermittent drizzle of rain. Unless you harvest your own wild edible mushrooms, it's hard to find any in the store with the roots still on them. I think the natural shape is so much better than a chopped off end.

I do know that the red striped cloth is there. The question is: Would you paint it into the picture?

I like the way they turned out, even before adding color. The ink in my fountain pen creates the perfect pale shadow as I run the damp watercolor brush next to it. The paper in my Stillman & Birn Beta Sketchbook is perfect for this ink and wash approach. It's smooth for great line work and thick (180 lb. white) to hold the watercolor washes without wrinkling.
