When I first saw this mystery flower:my first thought was that it's a version of cornflower - and a few days later I found this one to compare :)
Looks like Love in a Mist. They are beautiful aren't they. Great studies.
Lovely comparison drawings! You'll find that cornflowers don't produce a great seed pod but they also volunteer if they aren't deadheaded.
Love the way these are both artistic and diagnostic--the best parts of nature sketching--nicely done.
This is a PERFECT post for this blog, Nina, thank you! Beautiful and informative...
Beautiful pair, Nina!
Love your sketches - free yet with enough detail to remember how to draw them in the future.
Beautiful, don't you just love cornflowers or bachelor buttons as we call them. I love growing them in all colors
