Walk One Hundred and Seventeen – Sunflower in front of Jessamine cottages

WALK117

Having packed all my colourful media, for my holiday, I was forced to take out the dreaded graphitint pencils. When I spotted this sunflower (a flower this tall, I never quite believed existed when I was a child in Fiji) I intended to draw everything in the dull muted colours I had with me and then add the bright yellow petals of the sunflower with what I had at home. While I was drawing a completely unexpected shower changed all that and turned my pages into more colourful, sodden blotting paper. However I was rewarded with a beautiful bright rainbow.
I’m now ready to go for our long-looked-forward-to sailing holiday in Greece, so I’ll post all my walking and drawing when I get back in about two weeks time.
