I better put my thistle up too. We were not allowed to use a pencil to “set things up” and I really missed it. It’s hard to just start drawing with a pen and end up with something where you want it. We were also supposed to do this with a continuous line…..no lifting the pencil off the paper. I’ve been buying these beautiful purple/green thistles with one orange rose because of the contrast in color and edges. What fun to draw. I hope it feels prickly.
