Aster study

Pencil, 4" x 6"

The aster genus is extremely common, and includes any flower that is made of a large number of narrow petals with a dense yellow center, such as daisies.  The aster is actually a cluster of a number of individual flowers.  Meaning, each petal has it’s own pistol with coordinating stamen and anther in the center.  If you dissect the flower you can quickly start to see the individual components.
