Last year at this time
Blossom, 8x8" colored pencil on clayboard

Looking back a year to see what was happening in my studio is always an interesting exercise.
One of my works was experimenting with clayboard and how it accepted colored pencil, graphite, or paint. Here I have used prismacolor pencils and gotten a very nice effect.
The reference picture is one I took just after the rain! The foliage and the flower still held the water droplets. All very intriguing and quite beautiful.
