My focus keeps wandering outside. We have these immense, sculptural mullein, catching the light in the garden. I can see them from where I paint. How can I NOT paint these beauties? Besides, I need some time working from life right now. I did take photos to capture where the sunlight hits the leaves. But I’m glad to have the color and value range right in front of me. The soft green color of this fuzzy-leaved herb is very compelling in itself.
