Spring in Michigan in amazing. In a few weeks the world goes from brown sticks and mud to wild flowers and sunshine. I think I’m happiest when laying on my belly scootin’ up-close to some tiny flower. The wild flowers around here come in very fast stages … if you blink you’ll miss ‘em!
Drawing flowers can be a bit of a problem if you are “color-centric.” To draw flowers in grey scale you need to look at their structure and texture. It helps if you can find them in good lighting situations too.
So gather up your camera bag, throw in a drawing pad and a pencil or two, and go find those wild flowers before they’re gone!
