The following flowers are my entries for Today's Flowers and my inspiration to draw, utilizing colored pencils. Orchids love humidity so the only place I can think of is to put them by my kitchen sink. I love orchids because their blooms last for months.
Once in a while in the summer, I take them outside for much needed sunshine.
Painting is one of my hobbies, and I used to play with oil as medium until I stumbled/discovered colored pencils. They are so easy to set up, no messy brushes to clean up and it takes so little space that I can practically set up at one corner of the sofa using coffee table for my paraphernalia. ;) Pictured below is one of my very first attempts using colored pencil. As you can see, it is done by a novice, lacks dimensionality and definitely lacking the play of light... arrgghh, so inexperienced! lol

... my drawing, please note, the photo above was not my model.

... another attempt to capture the beauty of an Iris.
I am quite new to colored pencils and can't wait until I am able to produce quality work to show you, one that is bursting with colors. Right now I am still on my journey in learning building realistic hues, light and textures, and various colored pencil techniques ... so be kind, will you? lol
