Drawing with grass

I joined an atc swap where the challenge is to draw with blades of grass. I thought it was a fun thing to do, so I went to the park yesterday and collected a few blades of grass, some softer some sturdier. Then the idea occurred to me to draw Green Men. I discovered Green Men at the Rosslyn Chapel in Scotland when we visited last year, and found them a fascinating subject. Using simple, unusual tools, helps creativity, I find, takes the pressure off. It's funny how when you draw you enter different worlds. I was really imagining these guys populating my garden.
