Flowers on Tuesday by cheetahspirit Flowers on Tuesday by cheetahspirit
This is Tuesday. I think she looks like Tinkerbell come to life! I love the lighting, it's very dramatic. The background was tricky as usual, I didn't want it to take away from the subject but still find that it's important to the story I'm telling.

Thank you very much! They are good pencils - I haven't tried anything else except one called a Stabilo All, which you can find on their site. They are even brighter and more vivid!

Well thank you very much! And ironically, the only piece in the last 2 years that I have not updated with a higher res image! Either my new camera or my photographer has to get around to that! I've been happy enough with this photo so far. Glad you like her!
