I had another 30 minutes last night and this morning, so I could finish my girl.
Her look said that she knows herself, so that’s what her message is. I really enjoyed my new pencils. They blend so well and you can layer and layer and achieve this wonderful smooth look. The only little thing is that it gets quite shiny at some point, but in this case I am not bothered because it’s in a journal, but if it were meant for hanging on the wall, I am not sure what I would think. That’s one thing that you do not get with Polychromos.
Here’s a detail:
Overall, I LOVE the pencils. I love them more than Polychromos, I have to say. Next week I am going to try them on better paper. This was in Fabriano sketching journal, which has rather thin yellowish paper. I have some white cartridge paper at my other place, so I am excited to see what happens there… And tomorrow, I think, it’s back to watercolors and doodling…

I love the softness you’ve achieved in her skin. She looks fresh faced and glowing. The expression is also lovely.
Your blending is superb! I love her overall look, softness and mantra. 🙂
Thanks Carrie 🙂
