This is the first time I made a portrait on UART, using the colored pencil painting kit from Brush and Pencil. And I loved it! The possibility to adjust the background, the smooth blending and the fast way to cover the background are really big advantages compared to hot press water colour paper. And of course there is a learning curve. I will improve every time.
For this project I used the polychromos from Faber Castell, the pablos and the luminance from Caran d’Ache and the colored pencil painting kit from Brush and Pencil. The surface is sanded pastel paper: UART 600. For the blending I use a small panpastel tool.
