Day 17 - 30 in 30 Challenge Jan 2016 - Wildflower Mexican Redhat

Who says wildflowers are not beautiful? Look at this one - it caught my attention in the photo references available on Wetcanvas Library.
After looking up information on internet, I found following info on the flower:
These flowers resemble broad brimmed, high centered hats worn during Mexican fiestas with petals of yellow and reddish brown forming the brim. The plant is the same as Upright Coneflower except for its red petals with yellow borders. It is adapted to a wide area of the U.S., and is easy to grow. It can be planted as a garden border to attract butterflies. This perennial flower blooms in the summer.
The grass is done using the masking technique and putting layers of 4-5 colors working from light to darkest.

  1. I'm fascinated by your grasses! I'll have to try that, although I hate using masking. Your work is inspiring!
