Sunflower, Color pencil with a watercolor underpainting, 4 1/2" x 6", done on Arches hot press paper

This is a small color pencil that I did quite some time ago.  I find that color pencil works nicely on Arches hot press watercolor paper, and a watercolor underpainting seems to speed up the process a bit.  Color pencil is labor intensive, so I rarely use it these days.  They take forever, and I was loosing patience.  Once I discovered pastel, I never looked back.
