First water colour pencil

So today I tried out my new watercolour pencils. I have never used them before. A very good friend of mine, who has moved overseas, has given me his old set of WC pencils as well as a box of Art Spectrum pastels and two other small boxes of pastels - a big thank you to you Bruce!!!

I enjoyed using them. Wish I hadn't tried to be clever with the background. May go over it with pastels and lift the whole thing. The reference photo was of a Ranunculus from my garden.

Here is the original photo:

I'll definitely give them another go but I'll need to learn a bit more about WC techniques with brushes as well, but Ill have fun trying in the meantime.
