Blaze of Glory

Morning glory plants have amazed me for years. Some years you get none and some years it's ok. I can't tell the difference but the evidence is in the plants.
 When things are right and the plants grow to maturity days become short before the blooms start. Questions arise about the frost that will surely come before long ending the season for all the tender plants alike. Over the weekend the blooms and sun came out allowing time for sketching. Raw canvas stretched over a frame serves as a surface to accept my pencil line that records the beautiful swirling shapes provided by the plants. Corrections to the original are made with a dry brush application of colour.
