Mom Artwork

I started another new project. It makes me happy to have a lot of different pieces going at the same time. This one is something I tried before, a colored pencil rendition of a small photograph of my mom when she was about 22 years old. It must have been taken right around the time she got married to my dad.

I started with my contour line drawing directly from my image as usual.

And here is my progress so far. My support is an 11 x 14 Pastelbord panel. The color is sand.
