Day 6 29 faces challenge

Well today I completed a face.  It did not quite turn out how I hoped but it is still pretty cool.  I hope you like it.  It is a face coloured with pencils (mostly polychromos with some Spectrum Noir.  It did not cover the background quite as well as I had hoped.  Oh well never mind.




The background is a combination of gesso, buff white and pans pastel dusted on using a brush then wiped with the paint brush to get the texture in the background.  I then drew and coloured the girl using pencils.  The hood and dark neck was painted last with acrylic paints.  Even though it did not turn out as I expected it was fun to experiment.  Perhaps next time I will draw the face before the background and do the background around the face, see if that gets a better result.  Thanks for popping round.  T x
