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.
