Petticoats - Mexican Redhats

11x8.5 watercolor and ink on paper of wildflowers growing in our vacant lot.  Commonly known as Mexican red hats, these have so much character and different form and colors; their petals resemble petticoats.  From dark red to a red-orange, their vibrant saucy pigment dot the landscape, often growing in clumps.  This ink and line wash is my 3rd piece featuring their lively design.
