Iris Bed Sword Painting

Yesterday I watched a film on urban art and wanted to draw large lose drawings. I bought a role of painter's brown paper and went to the iris beds. I taped the brush to the sword after doing my tai chi warm ups and forms. The iris were not blooming but I put flowers in there anyway.

Reflections: Drawing with an extended brush add momentum to each stroke. Abstractions happen. The paper rippled and added a horizontal direction. A sword wants to swing. Next experiment will be zen circles.
