I can certainly live with this:
Actually, I am really happy with this little sketch. It looks even better in "real life". The sheen of the oil-based colored pencils competes with the hard lines to the naked eye and it makes the veins of the leaves less obvious (more subtle). It's interesting, seeing the difference in a photograph versus seeing the real thing up close.
And comparing drawings, the bougainvillea now REALLY looks like "amateur hour".
