Pencil Portrait Child

My blog has now moved to www.artistsophie.com so this blog will have no more articles on it.

My first pencil portrait, I’ve been painting watercolour animals in a contemporary colourful style for several years and always avoided humans. I watched several YouTube videos on drawing eyes, noses and mouths then decided to have a go. I only had a 0.3 HB pencil pen – no blending tool or thin highlight rubber, so if I practice more in future I’d need to go shopping.
