An Edible Flower

I understand why ART is called a “practice” because some days it takes more “practice” to create a little art…

I was trying to draw and paint a pine cone today but decided I need much MORE practice before I can show you!  😉

I decided on a Nasturtium which I planted as an annual this Spring in a large pot next to a tomato plant.  Did you know the flower is edible and has a peppery flavor?  It is often added to salads.  Here is my sketch next to a photo of the plant:

I wasn’t totally happy with my colors in my sketch.  I used watercolor pencils with a limited palette.  I hope to paint them again in watercolors – hopefully in a looser style.

I wasn’t going to post my art today but I decided that it is PRACTICE not perfection that is my goal!

Happy Sketching!!  🙂
