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!!
