I've had some other things going on lately that maybe I'll talk about later if it works out, so I haven't had a lot of time for artwork.

However, I did manage to produce this. It is from a drawing challenge on a forum I belong to from a couple of months ago. I just had not gotten around to working on it. Flowers are not my strong suit but that is what a drawing challenge is about, getting out of your comfort zone and stretching your abilities.

I think it came out pretty good considering I don't usually do flowers. I wanted to do something colorful as I am longing for warmer weather and spring. Even though yesterday was officially the first day of spring it does not feel like it here.

It is an OSWOA, 4x6 colored pencil on bristol board.

It is beautiful and so perfect for this spring season. I'm glad you finished it.

Oh, this definitely says Spring and Summer! Beautiful color range in the flower itself! Very well done!

It seems maybe you surprised yourself with your success - I think that's what keeps me getting out of my comfort zone are those times when I am pleasantly surprised!

Flowers might not be in your comfort zone, but I think you just stretched it a wee bit. This is lovely...makes me long for spring as well, not here yet either!
