Chloe portrait in progress 4

Today I added details to the rock on the left side of the river, and started working my way across the right-side rocks and cliffs, working left to right.

In yesterday’s post I showed how I made the tree foliage with colored pencils on the dark blue-green underpainting. Today I did a similar thing with colored pencils, putting in all the detail of the rocks with colored pencils over the grey base color of the paper.

I love the way adding colored pencil details makes that portion of the scene go from flat, to 3-dimensional.
