Breathes :p As much as this made me want to pull my grey hair out at times, I want to do another dahlia drawing lol I think they are called Cactus Dahlias, but I could be wrong. Thank you Tina for the comment in the last dahlia post, good title :)

Here is an extreme close up showing the pencil pigment on the paper. Up close it almost looks like a painting. :)

And a framed version if I ever have the money to frame it (if it doesn't sell) After I use this in my portfolio to try to get into Uni I will be selling it.

It is gorgeous, as soon as I get the chance (my toolbar) I will stumble it.

That's just gorgeous (what other word would apply to a lovely flower?). The colours are so rich and deep. The close-up is great--shows off what is so wonderful about coloured pencil.

thanks :D I wish more people would see coloured pencils at not just being playthings for kids.

I think this turned out beautifully. Gratifying after all your hard work!

Beautiful work Jennifer, and really bold to do a pink flower on red paper, but it works wonderfully well.
