Columbine Flower
I sketched this at work last night and while I don't hate it, I know it's not my best work.  I haven't been feeling well since Saturday afternoon.  Extremely nauseous and haven't been able to eat much because most of it comes right back up.  It was so bad at work last night I was sketching just to try to keep my mind off of it.  Not sure if I have a bug or if it's my GERD, change of seasons is typically bad for my tummy but I haven't been this sick because of it since I was first diagnosed.

Ok, enough whining.  I tried my new Prismacolor turquoise pencils and while the graphite is definitely softer, I did notice some scratching just like with my cheaper set.  It's much easier to get the dark colors with the new pencils though, which leads me to wonder why anyone would need a 9B and why they didn't include and H or an F?  I'm happy with the color I get from them  though.  I added the black lines with my new Sharpie pen, which again, I absolutely love.  

I was trying to keep this short and sweet and I've rambled on again.  Happy Tuesday!

I think this is so well done. Really looks like it should be in a little flower book.
Sorry to hear you weren't feeling well...take it easy. Usually around the change of season people do become under the weather. Get some rest and some sunshine to brighten your day!
sketch is AWESOME

Sorry to hear you're under the weather and hope you're feeling better soon. This is a very nice pencil sketch and the addition of the Sharpie makes it pop.
