I like to finish one piece before I start another so I added color to the sketch of the two girls playing the piano from last week.

11 x 14, Neocolor II on Stonehenge.

C&C welcome.

Now I can try one of the photos from this week!

This skill with the Neocolor lls always astounds me! Guess I should practice more lol. Anyway, nicely done! Wet or dry or both?

Very nicely done. The flesh tones are great and the lighting gives the forms believable mass. :clap:

Good on ya for being methodical and so patient- it really paid off !! This has turned out beautifully ! :clap: I did the same picture, but I like yours better because it has a more 'finished 'look, and I appreciate that you painted the little girls with their eyes open ! Much more interesting ! :clap: :clap:

Thanks for the comments stonewhiteclown, Deano and xreader.

sundiver, I worked mostly dry. I wet the flesh tones in my underpainting and painted the eyes. The rest of it was worked dry. I did a little blending with a Prismacolor colorless blender to mute the white paper showing through although most of that is lost when I shrink the scan down. I am thinking "wax pastel" as I work rather than water color.

dabblerdot, I have done quite a few graphite portraits and I have found that even a tiny bit of eye showing adds to the portrait so I put it in even though I couldn't really see it in the reference photograph.
