EMD Challenge 34 - Autumn Leaves

Autumn ain't Autumn
Koh-I-Noor Progresso on Canson Mi-Teintes

OK ... so this isn't an autumn leaf ... but this is Australia so it isn't autumn either. It's spring and the ornamental fruit trees in the garden are in flower.

Koh-I-Nor Progressos are woodless pencils rather like the white thing that I used on the courthouse lantern sketch a couple of entries ago. They are a bit disappointing as they are not as soft as the white one was. They are really more like ordinary coloured pencils. I experimented with using only 3 primary colours and a white with this sketch.

Robyn, I am a botanical luddite so what flower is this? Peach, plum? I like the fold of the petals.
