A little plein air

I did a little field study at my family's farm property.  There were many wild flowers in bloom and it was a beautiful day.  I took the back road that follows the Rockfish River to get there because it makes you slow down and enjoy the scenery.  The air was thick with the fragrance of passion flower.  The sumac were in bloom and the Queen Anne's Lace was nodding in the pasture.  I stopped to draw a particular specimen that caught my eye.  I did not know that NeoColor water soluable crayons will melt in the sun but now I do!
