Swizzle Zinnias

 I grew these zinnias from seed collected from Cherry Swizzle zinnias which are white and pink.  I was so pleasantly surprised when they bloomed yellow and pink!  So far, half the starts have this color variation!  Love what seeds do on their own!  So naturally,  I have to paint them!  With Robert Oster's Thunderstorm ink in a favorite fountain pen, I start sketching in miniature ATC size.  I add watercolor with my half pans and finish before dark.  Love these little moments spent painting in my garden.  Painting number 2791 in 2791 days.
