Absolutely go crazy for mushrooms on every level. Their shapes are so interesting, and there is such variety and “personality” to each one. These are fabulous drawings, and are so welcome for my nature art. You really cleaned these up beautifully.
Thanks for all the work you do sharing your wonderful images.

The last one fig 7 is not a parasol mushroom . It is an older inky cap.
