: 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

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.
