Indian Paintbrush 

Sketch of Indian Paintbrush  by Sarah Sullivan

Indian Paintbrush

The other day I did some small simple sketches of fields, mountains and sky using gouache on small sheets of black paper. I was practicing quickly placing the big shapes down in a free sort of way and did not expect to ever look at the work again. Today, though, I thought to use these as a background for sketches of wildflowers. Using pastels, I added a few stems of Indian Paintbrush, one of my favorite wildflowers, along with some aspen leaves and wild grass.
