Portrait time! Yay!
Work in Progress, of course! It will be 14" x 20" when I am finished, so larger than life. I just love her olive skin tones and large eyes. Her eyes remind me of that famous fresco in Pompeii.
For those new readers, I do most of my portraits using Polychromos pencils on Fisher 400 paper. I use a linear stroke and interweave the colors which creates kind of an impressionistic feel, and then sometimes I blend out that stroke, and sometimes I don't. I haven't decided yet if I will on this one or not. I'm using a lot of green in the skin tones: grren gold, chromium green opaque, and chrome oxide green. The green really helps tone down the pinky colors of the flesh toned pencils.
