Echinacea is the genus name of the coneflower. They are from the daisy family. Birds as well as butterflies love these flowers as birds eat the seeds. They flower is also used s a natural healing product. The texture in the background of this painting was a salt technique. I also used a water-soluble product on this painting called Inktense. They are like watercolor pencils but are bright or darker water-soluble ink.
