Another Poinsetta Drawing, and Last Night's Snowfall

Here we are in Truckee, California.  I finished this second version of a poinsettia.  This was done almost totally with watercolor pencils and then brushing lightly with water.  At the end it needed more darker darks, so I added a little Prisma Color pencil work (wax-based pencils). 

Look at the snow we had last night!

Hi, Carolyn!
Your painting of Poinsettia is wonderful!!! You have not missed a free time - not a minute! You already have many sketches of plants. Did you thought to draw plants for books or magazines? :)
They are really beautiful!!!

WOW! This picture with trees in snow is remind me about Winter fairy tale with Ded Moroz (Santa Claus) and the magical adventures of animals! You had a great time! Fantastic Picture!!! Thank you, Carolyn!!! :))))
