Fiona, Ebony Pencil and White Colored Pencil
for Julia Kay's Portrait Party
This is my most recent sketch for the online group, Julia Kay's Portrait Party. The group started on Flickr, but more recently has an offshoot on Facebook. I've tried all sorts of styles using the photos pf Portrait Party members worldwide - blind contour drawings, watercolors, realistic and very stylized paintings, monoprints, all sorts of things. Over the past year or so I have labored over detailed colored pencil drawings, many with added background textures, drawings that took days.
This time time I decided that what I got done in two hours was it. No long drawn out laboring for me this time. So here is Fiona, with just some simple cross-hatching and white highlights.
And I like her fine.
