White Stone, inspired by stones from Japanese gardens.
The “Silent poets” is the name of a musical band which inspired me for this drawing. I wanted to draw mushrooms since a long time, but I could not find a suitable composition. The elegance of the dancers brought me the piece of the puzzle that I was looking for a drawing.
From a technical point of view, the paper used gave me some difficulties with inking, because its behavior is different from calligraphy paper. However, the final result preserves the depths and the white of the paper gives the final result an interesting shine.
