Baby Portrait Colored Pencil Art in Progress

Work in Progress
colored pencil
4x4 inches
A family portrait promised months ago is now on my drawing board. This progress image shows the portrait at about the half way stage. Layers of colored pencil are built up lightly until the desired values are reached. A small 4x4 portrait like this can require more effort than a larger work, but the small format seems perfect for this portrait of Alexis at three months old.

An image of the final portrait will be posted when done. I love painting children. Commissions accepted.
