Lacy portrait in progress 5 - What a difference colored pencil makes!

After the underpainting was done and all the ripples pressed out of the paper, I'm now working with colored pencil for the rest of the portrait.

This before-and-after picture shows what a difference colored pencil makes. All the details of the island and distant shoreline were added with colored pencils over the underpainting.

This is how the portrait looks now. I always love the way colored pencil brings a flat underpainting to life.
