Sketchbook Challenge : Fire Flies : Summer Wonders

These Fire Flies are done with Neocolor 2 Watercolor Crayons.

Remember catching fireflies when you were a kid, and putting them in a jar, thinking they'd be your lantern? They were never quite the same contained in that jar as they were flying free. We've seen a few around here this summer.

On J's cross country trek in her plane, she hopped from small airport to small airport. Many nights she slept under the wing of her plane. One night she said the fireflies were dancing in a field of soy beans in the midwest. I couldn't figure out how to render that scene, so I opted for the above. Maybe someday I'll figure it out ...
