If this year had gone to plan I wanted to develop my portraits more and play with mixing pastels and pencils to get the effect that I wanted. I have not had the time that I wanted but have still been lucky enough to get to draw a few portraits. The latest one to go to its new owner is this one.
I called it Giggles as it was a prize in a competition over at Giggling Hedgehogs and it also seemed to match this drawing. I am a little disappointed with the scan of this one as it makes her face look a little dirty but I did have fun completing it. I use a mixture of pastels and coloured pencils to give the different textures of hair, skin and cloth
I want to work on portraits some more…… I want to try some new angles too to give my portraits a contemporary twist.
I am looking forward to trying out my ideas.
