Beautiful Girl


This is another image from my coloring book set by Emannuelle Colin.  I just found out they printed a fifth coloring book and yes, I ordered it!  I colored this image with my latest gift from Uncle Sam.  I bought a set of Caran de Ache Luminance pencils.  This is the last set I am buying...ever in my life.  Three of my four pencil sets have replaceable pencils so they will last forever.  I used the new pencils,  odorless mineral spirits and a blending stump to color this.  I am surprised by how smooth the color appears.  I still need to work on skin of color.  This is my best attempt so far.  I would still like it to be just a tad darker.  I'll figure it out.  Time to You Tube it.  The more I look at this I feel like I want to add some darker areas to the face to shape it more.  Project for another day!  I hope I don't destroy it.

  3. OMG just leave it alone, it's awesome! Your work on the hair is stunning. So, these new Luminance pencils, how do they compare with the Polychromos pencils? I thought they were the best? Never mind, apparently, they are the two best brands for different techniques, according to youtube reviews. Now you have the best, no matter what! xoxo
