A Little Bit of Color

After days of gray skies and snow showers or ice/rain, I was definitely in need of some color.  I'm sure many others feel this during the drab winter days.  My worst time is after Christmas during January through about April.

Today I managed to do a little sketch of a calla lily using Faber Castell watercolor pencils.  After I finished, I debated on taking water to it but gave in for that richness of color my spirit needed.
