First Colored Pencil Drawings

I am taking the online colored pencil course Getting Started in Colored Pencil with Bet Borgeson. This is a 7 week class, and I have just completed week 2. The class emphasizes color. These are my first colored pencil drawings. The exercise was to use color as a device to express form. Prismacolor pencils on Strathmore 400 Series Drawing medium paper (9" x 12").
