Beach sunflower

Beach sunflower, originally uploaded by Elizabeth Smith.
We have a new park in town planted with all sorts of native vegetation. I used my Pitt pens, Derwent watercolor and Inktense pencils, and Niji Aquabrushes to capture these sunny yellow flowers.

I've always loved these tough plants - they have coarse and bristly leaves and stems and bloom under the most adverse conditions.
