“Abbie”- In Progress

I’m so excited to be doing a portrait of Abbie. Isn’t her smile contagious.  I’ve been smiling the whole time I’ve been working on this piece, I think. I’ve still got a while to go, but its coming together.

After starting out with a light pencil sketch I went in with a watercolor wash and blocked in my colors. After that I used my set of Prismacolor Pencils to build up detail and dimension. I’m really enjoying working on the piece!
