WetCanvas WDE - 15

The images at the WetCanvas WDE this week were almost irresistible. I have been wanting to do a portrait with my prismacolors on black paper for so long and this image was perfect. It is A4 (21x29cm) size and took about 3.5 hours to complete. I didn't capture the likeness very well but for a first portrait on black I am pleased with the result.

WOW! Fantastic portrait Shelly. The pencils work really well on the black.

Thanks for visiting my blog and your kind comments. This portrait is so nice to look at. Great job with the values (face). You also got some great movement going here.
