Lacy portrait in progress 6 - Important clouds

The clouds are finished. They are a very important part of this piece. An important part of what makes the colors and the scene.

A close-up detail. Colored pencil is not the best medium to do clouds, but they come out tolerably well with some hard work and concentration. And the right under-colors. In this case pearl-grey paper with a light wash of gold, peach, and pink. That was my base color on which to work with colored pencil.

This is how the whole portrait looks now with the sky and Smoky Mountains finished.
