Quite the Challenge

My overall experience was very good. The instructions are extremely precise. You do have to take your time. I enjoyed working with some new materials. The Caran D’ache museum aquarelle pencils, the Derwent lightfast pencil, and the Fabriano Artistico hot press paper were all new to me. I did have a time working around the spines so they are not as crisp as I would like. All in all an enriching experience.

Stunning succulent

I found the line plan very complicated and was not successful with it the flowers were easier but I could not define the cacti it seem a jumble I think in this case less is more. I’m sure the artist is clever and I admired her work. Also I tried to get the larger plan using the code you gave but could not get it to download
