African Violets in Colored Pencil

I finally got out of the house today and went to Jerry's Artarama.  I needed some tracing paper for a project that I am working on.  While I was there, I picked up some colored pencils.  Tonight I decided to play with them a bit.  The following study of an african violet  is the result of my "play time".  I did the initial drawing in pen.  (I wish that I had done it in pencil, since I am not thrilled with how it looks on the flower petals.)  However, I love how the leaves turned out.  I think they do look fuzzy.
