“Lindsey,” 8″ x 10″, Color Pencil

Looking over the shoulder is a very classy pose for girls. Her glistening hair and loose strands added to the very romantic image. I especially enjoyed her mischievous smile.

The focus in this portrait was definitely the rosy skin tone. The glowing pink in Lindsey’s cheeks can also be found in her forehead and at the tip of her nose. However, to shadow her face I had to use shades of purple, blue, and green. The same mix of colors were used for her hair, only I added some burnt umber for the finished effect.
