Aw, thank you, Val. :)  I began this painting a couple of months ago and almost gave up because I wasn't happy with the jar. I'm still such a newbie with CP. But when we were packing for this trip we are on, I decided to give it another go. CPS are easier to take on a trip than watercolors.

Oh, Susan....Terrific!!  What a delightful picture to paint, and it's wonderful. I love the jar...the transparency, shadows, are awesome, and the color of the marbles is great.  Good job, young lady!

 :thankyou: so much, my friends. I'm back to my watercolors now, but keeping my eyes open for another colored pencil subject to tackle. I just wish they didn't take so long to complete, but it's a good lesson in patience. And, hey, I'm retired, so I have lots of time.  :)
