Colour pencil portrait - Faber Castell Polychromos and prismacolor premier pencils on 21x27cm 160gsm sketching paper. For all the flesh tones I used polychromos pencils but tried out prismacolor pencils for all the work on the hair and the jacket

The colour of the jacket and all the details are fantastic...
In Spain we know very well Penélope and I think you've catch the life and expression of her eyes.
Beautiful!

Loving the colours you have used to detail her hair and her eyes are simply fantastic. Beautiful work!

Thanks :) Glad you like the work on her hair. I was tempted to tidy the hair a little at the top of the drawing, which might have worked better, but ended up leaving as is. Working on another more recent picture at the moment, but enjoyed drawing this one as it is the first time I've mainly used prismacolor pencils.
Thanks for your nice comment :)
