My wife had this sage cutting in a small, cut-glass vase on the kitchen window sill. I popped it on to the dining room table - with a very neutral background - to paint it. The fascination for me was in the light on the sage leaves and on the facets of the vase. Ink mainly, with some airbrush and pastel on the leaves.
