This past little while I have been hiking throughout the parks close to home for a different main reason other than for the exercise and fresh air. I am thoroughly enjoying this new craft of sketching with coloured pencils. Seeing as it's wildflower season, it's time to lay those colourful flowers on paper as I see them. For these park visits I paid attention to the flowers looking for ones I thought would be easy to sketch. It meant getting up close and almost personal with the single flowers to capture clear crisp details. Many hours were spent photographing the flowers and just as many more hours transforming them into sketches. These are a few wildflowers as I see them!
