Hi all,

Haven't done much with my watercolour pencils recently so thought I'd try something bright and colourful! The question I want to ask is: how should I do the background? I was planning on getting a 'watercolour' effect by taking the pigment off the pencil with a brush and lightly putting it on. If anyone has any other suggestions I'd be very grateful :) :clap:

I still have a few more leaves to do. Do I need to get more colour variation in there?

Drawn using Derwent Inktense pencils, on paper I can't remember just now so will edit with info in an hour or so!

Looks like this is coming along nicely. :)

I cannot really help you out much with the background because I have never worked with watercolor pencils before. You may want try posting this in the watercolor or watermedia forum.

I'll do exactly that, thank you! In the meantime, this is where it's at:
