Sagging Sunflower Sketches


From the the big non-responce I got here from my last couple of posts on the Traveling Chicken I thought I'd better do a few normal posts, so everyone doesn't think I've completely Flown the Coop!

Jerry brought me a bunch of large sunflowers earlier in the week. They are very cool and really pretty but they are awfully droopy! It was hard to sketch them with their leaves all wilting and their heads hanging so limply, bent down real low. I put a couple of big "A" clamps on one as a stand and set it up high above my eye level to get this angle. 

"People from a planet without flowers
would think we must be mad with joy the whole time
to have such things about us."  ~ Iris Murdoch

Have a great weekend everyone!
