indian paintbrush

the april challenge for the botanical art group is "something red and/or something native to your area" -- so i have incorporated those 2 things into my drawing of an indian paintbrush plant. most meadows have many of these plants growing in them throughout the summer, but the flowers are really beautiful in the months of may/june/july.

this drawing was done using prang colored pencils in a 9 x 12 sketchbook of 70# white paper. finished picture was sprayed w/ matte finish sealant to keep it from smearing.

I love this! They are such beautiful flowers -- they remind me of Texas this time of year, when they bloom side by side with the blue bonnets.
