Stinging nettles – colored!

Painted in the nettles, finally –

14×17″ – pencil, ink and watercolor on bristol.

I started painting in the warm brown spots before even realizing why –

then remembered the natural sting rememdy of rubbing fern spores on your burns. I can’t remember if this actually makes a huge difference, but – better than nothing, right? Apparently peeing on the stings helps, too – or rubbing on dirt, mud, alcohol – almost anything you can think of! …Ferns seem to be a safe bet, so I’ll stick to them.
