A colored pencil portrait of Kerri... I was so unhappy with the charcoal image I made of her, it just wouldn't do. Colored pencil seems to be the colored medium I feel most comfortable with due to the accessibility a pencil tip offers compared to a paint brush (at least for me), it mostly just means I need to practice more with paint... Maybe another day though, for now colored pencil especially in this portrait makes me happy, it's like something I've been looking for for years that was always in front of me but couldn't see. Should have paid more attention haha
Anyway, I'm quite happy with this thus far except I'm at a stand still with the back round. There's been a few ideas floating in my head such as a black and white city street scape or burning house of sorts. Leaving it blank has been contemplated as was a tragic scene muddled but clear enough to understand... I just can't make up my mind...
