"This is great.  I guess my problem with colored pencils was putting too much at once.  Great tip to do less a a time, not more."

You are very true Elena, my art work is basically a tribal painting but it is not from the state of Orissa, but from Maharashtra, where we have the metro city Mumbai/ Bombay. but there is striking similarity in the tribal painting of both orissa region and warli painting.
