I will have to write up details another time.

How to annotate pics in iPhone iOS 10.3
The edits seem to be split between a few apps.
Crop resize I think can be done right from photos edit.
Mark up w text and drawing is in email. (On messages too?)
Write text, change fonts And text size too. Also color of text.
In this case I had to resend the pic just to get it to annotate.
In notes here I can also start a drawing.
Poppies coastal floral landscapes and local landmarks - lobster sculpture and Talbot House, Rockland. Student art by adults and kids in art classes, 7/17 - 18/17

At least one of these lupine florals clumps should be done with your name!
A quick color sketch of an invented landscape.
Do a more detailed drawing and crayons of an invented lupine scene.
You can also work from a reference photo or painting.

Favorite Maine Cat & Dog characters, Lupine scenes, 4th of July scenes, red white n blues student art displays - early summer 2017
Nellie the dog was artist Bob Ensor's - she was known around the Marshall Pt. Lighthouse because they lived around there and went on many walks there. A friend wrote a story about her. Bob made the drawings. Then came the story of Nellie as a flight instructor, (actually flying instructor). Togus the cat is another well loved and real animal character of Maine.
Adult art class did lupine practices and drawings yesterday. Next time we will have to get some extra inspiration from the story of Mrs. Rumphias and the lupine. Students had to invent 10 samples of possible markings/scribbles/strokes for conveying lupine stalks. One of these was to include their name as the flower stalk.
Adult class had done Red White and Blues for the 4th of July - drawings of bluebirds and strawberries, even though bluebirds would rather eat mealworms and insects than berries.
In kids' class for the 4th of July we did parade and fireworks scenes.
