Echinacea flowers are a favorite around our gardens!  They have been blooming for weeks.  Today when I went out to take a reference photo I was treated with a visit by a tiny hummingbird who tweeted as he buzzed around the flowers.  

This is a first attempt to capture a few of our echinaceas for this exhibit.  It was intended only as a reference sketch but I like the simplicity of the result.  You may know that watercolor is a bit of a chancy medium and you do not know for sure what you will get.  I decided to stop at this point before I ruin it.

This painting is in the Daily Paint Works Auction
