Colour from the Season - Foxglove purple (update)

It's only taken three years to finish this pencil sketch! I first documented Foxglove colours in June 2011 and here they are again, lining the hedgerows of Exmoor and the North Devon coast and waving a gentle reminder to resolve my sketch. So...

...the darkest as well as the lightest purple magenta flowers; next comes the fresh green of the flower bud; the muted green of the stem and lastly a deep warm red/brown edging the leaves this year. You can't bottle it!

...from my seasonal colour sample notebook.
