Colored Pencil Practice

I was itching to do some art, but in my new tiny apartment I don't really have a ton of room for all my supplies. So when I moved in I brought a few sketchpads and my colored pencils. With one exception, I haven't used them in about 7 years, so I decided it was time to brush off the dust and get back into it. I looked at tons of great colored pencils artists, who both inspired and intimidated me and arranged my self a still life. It was only grapes sitting on a striped dish towel, but once got started, I realized I may have been too ambitious for an evening practice session, and decided to do without the towel. I remember liking colored pencils when I was younger because you could be really precise, but it turns out I have lost some of my patience with age, and they are definitely not a fast medium!

I actually did this back in September and just haven't been able to post it. I took it into work today to scan it, but the scanner was terrible and the nearest printing company wanted to charge me $25 to scan it. So I just took a photo of it with my camera. Not the best option, but oh well.
