:heart: I would like to dedicate this to ALL of my WATCHERS AND FRIEND'S that have been so supportive and encouraging, and leave such nice comments and feedback. I sincerely appreciate and love you all! :heart:


The Colored Pencil Magazine holds a monthly challenge, and this past challenge was the "Crocus" flowers. I didn't enter the contest, because I found out the contest was over already...but decided to try it anyway!

Prisma Color, colored pencils
Derwent colored pencils
Paper: Arches Aquarelle Watercolor Paper 140lb (300gsm)

CPM Monthly Challenge #1304 “Crocus”

I'm so glad we agree, they are so precious :)  Yes, when ever I see something so beautiful as a flower, I'm compelled to capture it for eternity too :)
