Beautiful Red Head




This week's challenge at The Outlawz Monday Greetings challenge is Sewing, fake or not.
Our sponsor for September is Fabrika Fantasy.  I chose this beautiful image.  I colored her with pencils using mineral spirits for blending.  It took so long to color her, about five hours, but I am really pleased with the finished product.  When I first got a close look at the image I just thought there is no way I can color this.  I remembered past coloring of very detailed images and I used Prismacolor pencils.  I really have started enjoying my pencils.  This image somewhat reminds me of my daughter-in-law, Karena, even down to the hair color.  The only thing I would change is the color of the peonies.  They blend in too well with her hair.  Coloring is definitely a learning process.
