    Some of my CP work

    These are beautiful Raquel. I like using colored pencils as well, though I use them in a more painterly style (and somehow seem to be able to get there without using solvent). I admire your patience to get this photorealism.

    Opinions on monthly challenge

    Kay, if it's watermedia or even if our artworks can include a bit of white pen/colored pencils/pastel pencils for highlights, I'm all for it.

    My first real CP

    Hosta, this is nicely done. I think though you could push the colors/tones without losing the muted quality. I'm doing this in watercolor pencils so it'll interesting to see the differences. Joy, good to see you here on Creative Spark.
