My current sketchbook is "ink only" due to the handmade paper but wildflowers require color! So I grabbed this wee coptic-stitch sketchbook off my shelf -- it was made mostly with leftover Nideggen paper. About 3" square, I've been painting some of the spring wildflowers in it.
|as usual, the first pages show a palette -- this one in a vintage Prang box|
|the Texas dandelion may actually be a Carolina false dandelion|
|the dewberry is tiny; the engelmann daisy is actually pretty large|
|not sure what the very tiny red-violet flowers are|
I drew this Texas star during a homeowner's association board meeting. We attended the meeting to submit plans for Bill's new woodshop. It's pretty certain to be approved.
The fish sculpture below was also drawn during the meeting.
