These four watercolor sketches of noxious wild weeds are from the fields/woodlands on Whidbey. I placed them in a vase so I could sketch them with graphite on watercolor paper and then paint. I used walnut ink for the text so it harmonized with the colors of the paint. The weeds are sour weed; it gives the red color to the open green and yellow fields; geranium robertianum found in shady gardens and woodlands; western starflower clustered in shady areas under trees; woodland strawberry a ground cover in open areas in the woodlands. This was a fun challenge.
