    I'm really really new to watercolors- this is the 4th one I've done in my life. But anyways, I was wondering how it is looking. It is a present for my mother eventually.

    I was thinking of using prismas on top of it as I'm much more used to using prismas and to add detail. What do you think? Does it need it. The background is going to just be some simple shading.

    Beautiful!

    I don't think it *needs* it but I do think the added detail would bring something more to the piece. Either way I think it will be lovely.

    Thanks! I've been working on the pencil part now. I'm just really slow with pencils and keep having to break to do a few simple things in between. Maybe I can work some more on it.

    Here's how the pencil looks so far. I can't tell if you can tell much of a difference. Any advice would be very helpful!

    The detail is great though I like the orignal better, but I think that is just taste, it reminds me of something in my past. Very nice work either way.
