Dying Sunflower

6x6 mixed media, yesterday's work of this dying sunflower that I photographed in my studio garden before it breathed its last. After ink sketching in its raggedy petals, I color sanded watersoluble pencils into wet watercolor, then used the pencils again here and there.  I was experimenting with combinations of greys for the background rather than always having a blue sky.
