Close-up of an Unnamed Plant

This afternoon I walked up to the college and sketched closeups of the flowers and leaves that belong to a plant whose name I do not know. When I got home I propped up my two sketches on my desk and looked at them. Although I liked them, each seemed too scanty to do justice to the hardy bush that had been my model. Eventually I imported both images into Procreate and superimposed one over the other. I adjusted the brightness and decided I liked combined image, which is above. The two original sketches were mostly gouache with a little pastel pencil and are below.
