I am still on a quest to capture stalks of red sorghum that is grown all around our countryside. I've noticed that new varieties are growing in popularity and that red is more and more rare.
I have collected photos and stalks of sorghum and made a number of tries to get it to look just right. I started and finished this 13" x 18" pastel on Canson MiTienes paper thanks to a snow day that gave me a three day weekend.
