I'm still participating in the 30 day coloring challenge. Even though it's not a requirement to color each day, I've managed to do just that, so far this month. I lost track however of how many days I worked on this project. Perhaps 4 days? I believe this early picture was my progress the first day, pretty tentative with my color. I actually used water with my CretaColor Aqua monolith pencils (I've been using them dry lately, they are so creamy and blend nicely).
At this stage, I was really happy with the result, it put a smile on my face!
I drew in branches with a sepia Sakura Pigma micron and added some background color.
And the full final version. I'm so happy with it that I can't bear to trim it down....I spaced the blooms too far apart for an A2 card. It may be a keeper. Or I may make a larger card than usual...
