Arches HP 300 gsm 12" x 9".
this was drawn in carbon pencil from a photo viewed on my computer monitor.
i got this pose from her after i had bantered her into annoyance. it fit her hair and shows a completely different color to her features.
the hair is one of the primatek paints, which lays on the paper like a thin sediment of plaster. it can be cut with an acrylic brush, which is how i added the highlights.
i divided the values into lights and darks, to emphasize her eyes. they and the background are the only blue in the image. everything else is green, yellow or red -- the illumination spectrum -- which gives the air lots of light.
