Redheaded Girl in Colored Pencil

I just finished this portrait, done entirely in Prismacolor Colored Pencil on  9"x12" Strathmore Bristol smooth. This is my first attempt at a portrait using Colored Pencils and it's taken me about a week to complete it. smile emoticon I used a technique which Lisa Clough Artist Lachri demonstrated in one of her videos, in which she demonstrates using paint thinner as a blending medium. Cool effect! Lisa is very good and shares many tips and demonstrations! I really enjoyed practicing the technique while working on this project. I'm very proud of it and hope you're enjoying watching my progress as I learn to be a better artist :)
