My Knightia excelsa illustration in coloured pencil is finally finished!

It’s finally finished! Over 120 hours later... This is the New Zealand native Knightia excelsa (Rewarewa) flower, which I enlarged about 4 times the actual size so I could get in as much detail as possible. I used Faber Castell coloured pencils on Botanical Ultra Smooth paper 300gsm.

This is my largest ever coloured pencil piece. It's roughly 34cm x 44cm. I do enjoy coloured pencil as a medium although realised while working on this illustration that I had to be extra careful not to smudge the work as I went along!
