It has taken some strength getting myself to make another post since both my hive and steemit accounts got hacked and I lost some money. Anyways, life happens. We learn and move.

Today I'd like to share a color pencil portrait I finished recently. It took me a whole week to make. I usually apply a base layer of values with pastel chalks before refining with pencils but I've been having problems with this approach since I got prismacolor premier pencils. They seem not to work well with the Reeves pastel chalks I currently use.

So for this portrait it was just prismacolor pencils and charcoal on the face and this approach takes a lot of time, you have to start with very light strokes and then build multiple layers on them.

I was able to use pastels for parts of the cap and top followed by Eerwent Color Pencils which work well with my pastels. Enjoy more progress shots below.
