I wondered how I could describe an entire field of firewheels, roasting in 100+ degree weather. They almost seem burned by the sun, not as delicate. When I made the smaller one, I caught that surprise in the flaws of this process. The strong colors look great. It was quite a struggle to find a good point in changing the red over to yellow on the petals. So I left the red to be closer to a tomato orange in order for the center to have more depth.
