So.... I was thinking that I haven't drawn or painted any flowers recently & they are one of my fav subjects. It occurred to me there is a beautiful flower whose common name is "Blanketflower." Gaillardia aristata is the Latin name.
I used the "Artist's Photo Reference Flowers" by Gary Greene since I didn't have any Blanketflower photos in my collection.
The flowers were drawn with Col Erase pencils. The background is mostly Derwent watercolor pencils that I blended with a water brush. The postcard sized piece was done on 90# cold pressed watercolor paper.
