This illustration was painted with colored pencils. I wanted her face to glow, and just simple line in the hair to emphasize her face.
Soon more art.

Tools used: Prismacolor premier,  colored canson paper, Staedtler pencils and Baby Oil.

As an advice everybody who use color pencils should try to blend with baby oil  you can get
a very smooth effect


Hi, I have to tell Iīm very impressed by all the attention this illustration has generated. Thanks a lot!!! to everyone who has added to favorites and commented, I will try to answer everyone as soon as I can.

Beautifully minimalist line work around the periphery, with the colour in her face and clear blue eyes really bringing this portrait to life. Mighty fine piece! :#1: :trophy:
