Swamp or Narrowleaf Sunflower
Last week, I finally found a semi-quiet road where I could pull over to stop and quickly pick a stem of these sunflowers. The top flowers started to wilt the next day! Guess they don't like tap water!
I used Derwent pastel pencils that I've had for years but never realized they are water soluble!!!!! I like the painterly effect. I did the calligraphic type with traditional watercolors using a rigger brush. The rest of the body copy was written with a Micron 005 pen.
