In this painting of a little girl, I’m going to walk you through some important tips that you want to remember when doing your own colored pencil portraits or drawings. I’ve used Faber-Castell Polychromos and Caran d’Ache Luminance over an airbrushed background.
My reference photo is from www.ksummersphotography.com
For this portrait, I airbrushed my background with createx airbrush paint thinned down with water.
The colors that I used for the skin were:
Luminance: Burt Ochre 10%, Burnt Sienna 50%, French Grey 10%, French Grey 30%, French Grey 100%, White, sepia 50%, Violet Grey
Polychromos: Dark Flesh, Walnut brown, Paynes Grey 30%, Bistre, Burnt Sienna, Mauve
