"Chrysanthemum", 2009
Prismacolor colored pencil on Stonehenge paper, 7" x 5 3/4"

This is the first time I tracked the pencil color of a piece. Many colored pencil artists give a list of colors used in a piece when discussing the work. I did use a clear blender pencil on the leaves of this drawing, and felt this caused me to fill the tooth too quickly.
Background: indigo, ultramarine, violet, poppy red
Leaves: apple green, olive, grass green, peacock green, dark green, deco aqua, scarlet lake, violet
Petals: peach, lemon yellow, orange, poppy red, parma violet, touches of dark green
