colored pencil portrait, work in progress
I've been working on this portrait on and off for the last little while. I haven't made all that much progress with it, and this is still pretty rough. I'm just blocking in the basic placement of features, and starting to lay in some color. It still has a long way to go.
But it's fun. There's something kind of therapeutic about working slowly with my pencils. Although I do tend to get discouraged when it takes me an hour to lay in the basic skin tones, which would have taken me minutes with my watercolor. Have I mentioned that I'm impatient? ;)
I'm also going to count this as a sketchbook post for the week. Why? Ahem. . . because I used pencils. I know, I know not quite the same, but it'll have to do.
Have a great weekend everyone! And thanks to all of you for taking the time to stop by, I appreciate it so much. Every comment makes me smile a little more, you guys are great!
