This was my first ever try in sketching using colour pencils... but i think it was quite satisfying. Please do comment and share your views, thank you!

Hi Rachana,

Thanks you for your submission, I think your first attempt with colored pencils is delightful.

My suggestion would be to get softer blending between your darker shades and the lighter ones. If you notice on a rose, there is a very subtle change in tone values which makes your rose or flower look very delicate.

The contrast should be where the shadow of a petal comes across the foliage or on the background. This gives your image more of a three dimensional look and feel.

Good work, Keep it up.

Thanks a lot for the input. I will keep that in mind and try to implement it next time for sure!
