Thought I try something different

This is the first picture I've completed of a series of drawings that are still in the planning stage. I'm thinking a child's book, something like 'Karen's Search' or something. I will include in each drawing two native plant species that grow along the Humboldt Coast, and the western slope of the central-north Sierra's.

I'm currently using Derwent colored pencils (Artists, Colorsoft, Inktense, and Studio) on Rising museum board four ply at 8"x12".

I would love some critical direction. My skin is thick, so don't be shy.

Thanks, Sean

Work like you don't need the money,
Dance like no one is watching
And love like you've never been hurt

Be kind, everyone carries great burdens

This is great, Sean! I can definitely see this in a children's book!

Thanks PencilMeIn!
I have two more, one in the oven and one on the back burner. Yet, I just got a book on light and shadows that I really need to digest prior to completion. This art stuff is a long and winding road, just when I think I'm getting a handle on it another intersection pops up and off I go----again.
PencilMeIn and Oana like this.
