Drawing From Nature

I turned my attention to items that were close at hand, and favorites of mine - sticks and flowers.

Sketchbook page-
Tulip Poplar flower, Oak twig end,
eastern Red Cedar branchlet (top left)

I liked the tulip poplar flower so I pulled it into Illustrator and tried a few color combos.

I am a complete newbie to digital painting or coloring.
But I can see the addiction of it...

Very nice. Someday I must learn Illustrator.

Love your drawings from nature & also the rusty fabric piece you're giving for auction, just beautiful.
