Drawing miner's thrift

In botanical art class today, the teacher brought in real plants (recently dug up) of "miner's thrift", a wild lettuce-type plant. I did a preliminary drawing of a single leaf (right side of photo) and a larger study of the whole plant (left). The top picture is my ink sketches, a rock with interesting holes that I brought to class, and some small shells that the teacher provided.

They feed the kids that on the Hidden Villa fieldtrip! They called it Miner's lettuce. Not bad--slight lemony taste.
