Summer time

In the summer we have fresh cut flowers in the house all the time. This lilly was sketched from a vase full. I added some color using colored pencils. Not real happy with the results but you have to start somewhere. I've never done much with colored pencils. Also this was done in a Pentalic sketchbook. They were on sale so I bought several. They have a very smooth surface. Haven't tried a watercolor wash yet but I doubt that the paper will take a wash. Too light. We shall see.

Hi Uncle Doug
I really like it! What can I say, I prefer sketches, both color and black/white, and watercolors over painty paints. (especially anything with sunflowers in it, hint hint)
