Sketchbook Challenge Entry

Here it is, my sketchbook challenge entry for January. I drew the camellia with a #2 pencil, then colored it with CARAN d’ACHE Neocolor II watercolors. They are a lot of fun to work with. You color your picture, much like you would color in a coloring book, then take a wet paintbrush and paint the crayon marks. They blend and take a look much like watercolors.


The theme for the January sketchbook challenge is “Highly Prized”. I don’t have the skills to draw those people in my life who are highly prized, so I picked a flower that was highly prized by my late father. Camellias are blooming in Florida now, I need to plan another trip to Leu Gardens in Winter Park.
