Hubby and I spied the first dandelion bravely growing against the house foundation on Saturday afternoon. Most people would cringe at the sight of one of these flowers but not us, we are actually happy to see it.
To commemorate the occasion I did a quick study of the flower and leaf using a few of my new PanPastel colors that hubby bought me for my birthday. I think the Hansa Yellow really captures the bright sunny flower head. A few streak of white were all that was needed to give it some sparkle.
So the next time you see a dandelion instead of pulling it up and tossing it away pick up a sketchbook and have some fun drawing it. You might be surprised at how interesting they are.
