Thistle, Snap Dragon, Poppies, and Rose by heartMelinda Thistle, Snap Dragon, Poppies, and Rose by heartMelinda
11 x 15
tea, watercolor, colored pencil, pen on Reeves BFK

Inspired by my Sketchbook Project 2012.
I love using pen because it forces me to commit to my marks. No erasing, no going back. Once a mark is on the paper it is there forever.
Thistle was suggested by my step brother. He is studying in Scotland right now and the Thistle is the flower of Scotland. Snapdragons were my favorite flower when I was a child. Poppies for my grandfather whose nickname was Poppy and a Rose from my garden.
I would like to do a series in this style of the state flowers for all 50 states. I would also like to experiment more with making these pieces even bigger, maybe a whole sheet of Reeves.
