I absolutely love the lupines! The smooth round petal like leaves and the towing pillars of striking flowers can completely take over a countryside. They are so majestic! The tall stalks appear to be standing at attention, reaching up to touch the sky. Lupines are definitely one of my favorite flowers. I had lots of fun searching for inspiration and sketching these flowers tonight. Lupines come in many colors, most often deep purples, reds and pinks. However, I chose to color them with a more muted palette of greens. I felt the shapes and textures were already so bold and could stand alone, without a ton of bright colors. Hope you like them.
