Sketching with Colored Pencils

Image

My five year old daughter loves to color and draw, so I joined her in drawing with colored pencils. The first pencil I picked up was Orchid which gave me the inspiration for my sketch. It is my goal this year to try and sketch a little bit each day. In high school my sketchbook was my constant companion, but since then I have rarely drawn much of anything. For being so rusty I was actually pretty impressed with this sketch, so I thought I would share it here. Feel free to tell me what you think. One thing I have gained in the years since I last sketched was thick skin. I can take criticism in stride. In high school I would have likely cried.
