More little faces in my journal. I like working in this size journal although it's hard to do details on such a small format 3 1/2 by 5 1/2. I'm up to the 1600 point datewise in the self portrait book. Here are the latest three.
For me, these have presented a new challenge. Hair is a challenge too, but I spend little time trying to capture it.
Most of these originals are painted against a very dark background. Having them on the white makes them stand out. I may want to go back with paint and brush later and see how they look with painted backgrounds. I dont' want to do that with pencils.
At the bottom are the Pitt Pastel Pencils that generated the other orders. I had read good reviews and recommendations for these and could not find them locally. I could order a case of them, but not a single set. So, it was Amazon to the rescue once more.
Do you have a favorite brand? A favorite red? I'd like to hear about them. Now to go post to my old personal blog. I haven't checked in there for a long time.
