Bee and Black-eyed Susans

 I am always drawn to the cheerful faces of black-eyed susans!  Their sunny yellow faces shine in the garden - and these are showstoppers at the Thompson Park in old town Overland Park.  Meeting a few other watercolor artists covid style for a little painting, I found this sweet patch of flowers to paint for my second of the morning. I wanted the format of this square paper, but I had forgotten that I like this smooth hot pressed surface better for ink than for watercolor.  I made it work, but missed my normal texture.  Every once in a while, I need to restock my various sketch bags, or I might be painting on trash I pull out of a barrel!  Lol!  Painting number 2780 in 2780 days.
