"Gwen & Kent" portrait in progress 4

Updated: Jan 22

Now putting in Gwen’s gray suit….


On the monitor I’ve blocked out the background of where the photo was taken so I can get a clear sense of exactly what colors make up Gwen’s green top on the grey paper. The photo has lots of green trees and bushes behind Gwen that confuse my eye.

9 different greens, blues, and blue-grey pencils, carefully layered and blended together, were used to make up that mint-green top.


I love the way that cool green makes the skin-tones look so warm by comparison.
