Friday Sketches - Week 22

Prairie Flowers

This summer has been the most "Floral" summer in the mid-west I can remember for many years.  Everywhere I turn is an amazing picture postcard worthy view of flowers. 

The area in which I live has some beautiful forests and state parks and the wildflowers have put on the show of shows this year.

Prairie Flowers

It's been an artists dream with so many opportunities to sketch.  I love the prairie flowers which are scattered everywhere.  Fields filled with glittering color.

This sketch of "Prairie Flowers" was done in a Stillman & Birn "Epsilon" Series sketchbook, using watercolor pencil.  

What does the natural world look like where you are?
