I think it's time to get the colours out. I love colour but mixing it scares me.
I started these drawings with the one in the left just in 5B pencil but as the photo I was drawing from had such amazing colours I decided to go and get my box of watercolour pencils. These are great because there's loads of different effects you can get with them depending on how/when/if you add the water. The pen I used ran in the water too which gave an interesting effect. I went over the original pencil shading on the left plant (Cerinthe major) in colour but the pencil underneath made it loose it's vibrancy (obviously really).
Time:1hr and a bit
