It kind of worked out for me that my Intermediate/ Advanced Students were about to begin a colored pencil self-portrait. This was the perfect opportunity for me to create this artwork while creating an example for my students. It has been a few years since I've created anything in colored pencil. I forgot how much I love to blend and burnish.
Instead of posting all of the progression photos I took, I thought it might be nice to watch them in a video slide show. The song is called Beautiful Things by Gungor. It is one of my favorite songs at the moment.
