Louie portrait in progress 9
Filling in the squares of the blanket. It’s not going as quickly as I thought it would... I hadn’t really focused on the fact that every square in the plaid blanket is made up of stripes: two different colors.
I love the way these colors look on the “Bisque” (golden brown) Canson paper.
It’s hard to get good yellows with colored pencil on a darker paper. They just look brownish and dull. I have to first lay down white pencil, and then go over the exact same pencil stroke with the yellow
The whole portrait so far:
