Purple Coneflowers

While sitting for another artist in the garden of Edgewood Orchard Gallery, I sketched first the artist, then moved to the flowers that flanked him.  My urban sketch pack always at my side, I first inked those lovely coneflowers.  With a fresh and lively stroke, I dropped in a like watercolor with my water brush pen.  The very best thing about these pens is their ability to hold water (without leaking into my purse) which I can push out with a little pressure.  No other water needed, which is perfect for sitting on a stone ledge and painting in the garden!  Oh how I LOVE the artist's life!  Painting number 2022 in 2022 days.
