The Hive Autumn Challenge - Colored Pencil Autumn Scene

I have been working on this drawing for over a week and came very close to not finishing this picture.  It had been several years since I last worked with colored pencils and with time forgot how labor intensive they really are.  I am happy to report I am very pleased with how this drawing turned out.  As promised here are the progression photos and the finished piece.

Getting the base down

Look you can see a leaf

By this time I was thinking - I'm crazy

I came very, very close to stopping here.  I even tried making it smaller (5"x7") but my husband talked me out of it!

"The Road Less Traveled"  
The picture is 8" x 10" drawn with Prismacolor Pencils on Gray Canson Paper.
