Sketches Here and There

One of today's sketches... a blazing star, rough, I believe, with just the very top flower in bloom.
This sketch of a cardinal flower is from Sunday at the botanic gardens... the red was so deep and bright and velvety and wonderful that I actually added some color to part of the sketch... but Crayola didn't do it justice, I'm afraid.
The bunchberry is the sketch I did in Maine, which isn't my favorite ever. I'd have preferred to draw one with actual berries -- there were some, but not where we stopped. The form was almost too simple, and that made it harder to draw...
