Here is todays update. I added some neocolor II as a base and started on the leaves. The neocolor sure helps to cut the amount of layers needed with the color pencils. A darker green would have been even better, but I just have a few measely colors right now so this had to do. Another thing that I've put on my huge wishlist, which is getting longer and longer. The bristol board works out so so, and I am not to crazy about it; Stonehenge is still my top choice of art paper right now.
