Echinaceas are such interesting flowers.... I never realized how many varieties there are until the past couple of years, The most common one is a purple but then there is also pink, orange, red and even "double" varieties that are soooo pretty! I've kept seeds from all the many ones I grew last year and hope to have them come up all over the garden! Everywhere would be just fine with me!
|I'm blocking in the warmer and cooler long shapes. Enlarging the photo of the petal helps me to see shapes of colors instead of "crinkles" or "folds" that seem to scare me off....|
|The color mixes turned out okay but I still haven't gotten the jest of making the valleys and folds in each petal. I know what I want to do but when I put brush to paper my passionate and desperate thoughts don't translate.....|
