That was quick, thank a lot Linda!

This is so rich in colour and texture .

It's more than fantastic Carole! Who would have thought that something like that can be done with coloured pencils!! Awesome!

I haven't seen such richness from pencils before, it's really stunning, Carole!

Very kind comments much appreciated thank you...

Love the gradation of purple/ pink hues. So rich and beautiful Carole.

Fantastic colours on a beautiful painting well done Carole

Fantastic you can sense the softness of the petals

Superb work Carole! The depth of colour is marvellous, you have more patience than me with coloured pencils. What size is this please?

A fabulously rich and nuanced piece, with superb layering and depth. Great work, Carole!

Goodness, what a fabulous blue Carole, lovely drawing.

Stunning work as usual Carole

Those colours are absolutely stunning Carole as is your pencil work. Beautiful.

I learn so many flower names from great flower painters like you Carole. This purple colour is very powerful. Energising.
