When I first saw retrosketches #35, I thought, “Whoa, that’s a lot to take it!” And then I saw Jen’s card that the sketch was built upon and said, “Wow, that’s an incredible piece of work!!!” I have been waiting for the perfect challenge to use SU Pleasant Poppies. This was my one of my first attempts at coloring a large image as well. I used Prismacolor Premier Colored Pencils and Gamsol Odorless Mineral Spirits. If you enlarge the photo, you can see the color gradiations:)
