Blue Girl WIP #6A and 6B



(9 x 12, Colored Pencil with watercolor underpainting)


She's got hair!

Posting two WIP's... the whole portrait to date and a close up of her face.

I've given her some hair and made some refinements to her face (they were necessary... really!). Blue Girl will have a chance to sit for a while before I work on it again ... I'll be out of town - and offline - for a few days so I hope you have a good weekend and I'll catch up with you about the middle of next week.

You're achieving such wonderful depth in her eyes... really in the whole portrait. To get so much out of watercolor and colored pencil... amazing!

Teresa, Your Blue Girl portrait is beautiful! Stunning work... your attention to detail is wonderful.

I'm so glad that you had a wonderful time in Ocracoke. (i missed you by a week... i'll be there this coming weekend) Thanks so much for stopping and taking a look in the Harborside and for your kind words as well... much appreciated... can't get enough of the bright colors!

Cindy usually tells me about who she's spoken with, so she'll probably mention you.

All the best to you!
