There's a long and tough Winter ahead of me...just thinking of it makes me desperate.
But i know for a fact, after every Winter, Spring follows.
And after Desperation, Hope follows.
I ll make it through. Because i can.:nod:

I used Derwent watercolor pencils dry and Prismacolor pencils on Canson Mi Teintes 160gm/m2 tinted.
My beautiful ref

Christina I think that you did an excellent job on this piece of art. I absolutely love the way you did your shadowing and details. You did an amazing job with the hair and the reflection in the eyes of the little girl. Your line work on your flowers and on the grass behind the little girl is very well done. I think that you did an excellent job on making it look like the original picture. I love how detail oriented you are, and I would love to some more of your art work. I hope you appreciate everything I had to say.
What do you think?

In my opinion they are the best color pencils possible. They blend wonderfully, their results are amazing. Couldn't be happier with color pencils. :thumbsup:
