Field Trip to Big Branch Marsh NWR

Dk and I had fun yesterday making this video while I got some sketching done. We saw trumpet flowers, wild hibiscus, lilies, and a variety of new plants that we haven't identified yet. I try to keep notes in my sketchbook about what color family the flowers use so I can reference the imagery later. Drawing is my way of starting over. Whenever I'm beginning a new group of paintings, I take a day to ride around and see what is growing. 

Here are some of my past wildflower drawings. Many of these have been framed and are available through Ann Connelly Fine Art in Baton Rouge.


While you're here, please take a sec if you haven't yet to sign up for my studio's newsletter. It's a quarterly publication of updates, musings, links of interest, and of course - Art.

Thanks for looking, :)
