Olivia by ChrisWoottonArt Olivia by ChrisWoottonArt
This drawing is for the September Draw along challenge.

Olivia is my first attempt at using colour pencils, this is a really tricky medium. You have to be so much more precise than graphite. :phew:

A4 Bristol Board, Polychromo, pencil rubber, and 9 hours. Only a very small part of the overall reference.

The beautiful reference is Olivia Henry by the very talented :icondiamoneyes:

I hope to get better, but it was really good fun trying to work out the colours.
Thanks for taking a look. :woohoo:

Thanks, you're too kind. :heart: There's much to work on. Not happy with the skin, couldn't get the tone or the graduation of colours right. The main thing is the fun of a challenge of a new medium. :hug:
