trying to capture blue

Trying (unsuccessfully) to capture my nephew blue…almost got him somewhere in the middle but couldn’t resist the temptation to keep going (and overwork it). In my defence, he is almost 8 and so his proportions are inbetween child and adult and not so easy to get down correctly. I haven’t worked with pencils for a very long time (preferring charcoal, pastel and recently watercolours) so it has been fun to reaquaint myself with them. I’ll keep trying and get blue down properly one day!

    • Thanks! I am just disappointed that it doesn’t capture his likeness, but if you don’t know what he looks like i guess it’s alright.
