Summer Fireweed # 58


This is inspired by the Pelikan pen sketch "Oregon Logging," but this time I painted at home, mostly from my head. After logging or a fire, fireweed often comes into the artificial opening. It makes for a pretty scene with the fireweed andthe forest. I purposefully played a little with the color. I tend to be totally realistic and wanted to include some artistic.

Watercolor on Strathmore 140# watercolor paper.
