Color Pencil Portrait
Yesterday I did not feel like I had time to start annother painting so I pulled out my colored pencils and did this drawing of my son. I think I added too much shadow on the right side of the face but he knew it was him so I guess it was a sucess.
I tried to approach the project as if I were using paint, thought about adding the colors the same way I would in a painting and just built up the darkness slowly. I have never done much with color pencils before so I guess the thought process worked.
