Drawing some little bits of nature....

I put together an assortment of iris petals, a dandelion, lily of the valley, and a little yellow flower, and drew them carefully with a pencil on Bristol paper.  I liked how it looked just with the pencil, but I couldn't help but color it in.  I used some watercolor, and color pencil.. But mostly watercolor... I'm not sure, again, whether I like it better before I colored it, or after.  

I could have worked on it a bit more, but I decided to stop here.
Thank you for taking the time to check out my artwork!

This is a little pencil drawing I did today of a sprig of violets I pulled up out of my yard.  After I was  finished  drawing, I decided to color it in with some watercolor.  I took a picture before and 
after... I don't know which one I like better.
