Polychroma Pencils

I am not the greatest sketcher but i do find working with polychroma pencils relaxing although time consuming as you build up the layers of colour. I havent done any pencil sketching for quite some time and had decided to take my pencils and a sketchbook with me to the hospital for after surgery recovery so as I sorted out my pencils I did this little sketch of a lily in remembrance of those beautiful flowers we had a Christmas. Working in this way gives ideas for thread selection and direction, toning and medium selection if I wanted to use this in a textile peice.
