Now, before I go I thought I would share another little tip:

When colouring something realistic please don't guess, especially if like me you've never seen a real peach tree!
May I suggest searching for images online.

I'd die of embarrassment if after hours of colouring someone said - "oh, nice apple tree"

I made up a montage sheet on Pages (Word would be fine) of images of peaches which I constantly referred to whilst colouring.  It was also of enormous help when I added in my own, hand drawn element to balance the composition!

As always thanks for dropping by, 
I hope you enjoyed todays post as much as I did colouring this!!
