Painting without Brushes

Here are some ink paintings that I did without brushes – In the first I used a twig from a rosemary bush in the garden that seems to be dying. I used fountain-pen ink.

In the next two I used a porcupine quill, a sponge and my index finger. I added some ochre from a bit of ochre from the N Cape.
