New Challenge

And now,  more fun.
I started working on the January Colored Pencil Magazine Challenge a while ago. It's a portrait this time. I decided to take my time, and do the best I can. It was just a bit intimidating!
I used Prismacolor and Lyra pencils on Stonehenge Kraft paper, 9x12"
I also used some mineral spirit for the black because it didn't stand out on the Kraft colored paper as I had hoped.

What a challenge! I had to pry the pencils out of my hands and force myself to stop so I wouldn't ruin everything. I added so many layers that the paper doesn't have a tooth left, it's smooth as a baby's botton, and probably twice as heavy as the original paper weight!

A big thank you to Sally Ford for sharing her beautiful photo.

You can see a few more work in progress images here.
