Abby

Hi everyone,
it has been a long time since I've posted here, but I do look occasionally.
This is my second, what i consider to be successful, portrait. It is my 2-year-old granddaughter Abby.

12X9 MiTientes white paper using prismacolors.



I dont know why it turned out so large.

Thanks for looking and C&C please. As usual, it looks so much better in person.
JoAnn

Re: Abby

Ooooh, you use the honeycomb side of Mi Tientes, brave girl!

this turned out beautifully, I love the blues I see in the skin tones!

Keep it up, can't want to see your next one!

Re: Abby

Thank you Robin! I did not intend to use this paper at all, much less the honeycomb side. I was just practicing on it and planned to start over with a different paper. But when it started turning out better than I thought it would, I just "braved through" it. I'm pretty happy with it actually.

AAWWwww..... She is such a cutie . I love the softness of the colours in this which are perfectly emulating the age of the subject.
