Lindley Lupines....Lovely

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.
