work in progress: cactus and artichokes

A look at another work in progress.  I began by spending some time sketching in the garden and later working from photographs I had taken of the plants.  The media is colored pencil; I'm working by blocking in light layers of color, pulling them together with a blending stick.  This was my morning and afternoon, after two long espressos and a donut at the local cafe.  I'm not sure what will go in the background yet, I may leave it blank until I get home and have access to the lightbox in my studio.
