Creating Challenge Day 204--Plein Air Sketching

This clump of prairie sunflowers delighted me, so I decided to sketch it.

I drew these in a plein air setting. With the wind blowing, what I saw was slightly different than the image my camera phone captured. This is the adventure of plein air art, something I've wanted to explore but have, until now, avoided. Plein air means "the open air," and plein air art is done outside.
