Colored Pencil of Almost a Sun Flower

"Almost a Sun Flower"
colored pencil 14" by 17"

I am still amazed a how much fun the colored pencils are. I notice that my technique is very heavy handed. I build up very thick layers. that is hard on the paper and at some point the work will not take any more pencil. Colored pencil remind me of how exciting it was to get a new box of crayons when you were young. My technique gives that waxy build up you get from crayons. For me there was never a better present then a brand new box of cayongs. Their smell can still get to me.
