The Fortune Teller – part 1

Art, artwork, Colored Pencil, coloured pencil, Portraits

I have been working away on my latest piece of art work for some weeks and now that it’s heading towards completion I thought it was time to begin sharing it.

The first images show how I built up the skin tones and depth of colour working on Bristol Board and using a mix of Coloursoft and Polychromo pencils.

I apologise for the angle of the images and the quality but the rear facing camera on my iPad which I use for work in progress snaps isn’t working and so a combination of contortions are needed to get these with the forward facing camera.

The photo reference is my own and was taken in Havana, Cuba. The woman was sat in a square in the town reading fortunes.
