    Strathmore 300 series vellum surface paper.

    Prismacolor Premier Colored Pencils.

    Took about 4 hours to finish. The stem looks bad but I blame the phone camera. I can't seem to get all the colors to show properly. Looks a lot better in real life. The paper is white (just to give you an idea of how bad the color is). I don't have proper lighting to get the picture to pop.

    ***I think I'll add a leaf just to add more green color to it

    To all the botanists out there...this is an apple leaf.

    I took 3 pictures and cleaned up the picture each time but can't get it to show up properly. I blended the colors very smooth but can't get it to show properly when I take the pictures (lighting is reflect differently from the graphite and colored pencils). So the leaf in the picture looks like shit.

    For anybody who wants to see it in person if you don't believe me the real thing looks better than the picture go to my mom's house (cause I'm giving it to her). Just tell her you're my boyfriend and she'll let you in.

    ***APPLE
