A Portrait of Lloyd – A speed drawing of a Colored Pencil Portrait with Powder Blender on Uart 600 Sanded Paper 9″x12″

Please share...

I recently completed a colored pencil drawing of my friend Lloyd Matson using techniques gleaned from Alyona Nickelsen’s new book Colored Pencil Painting Portraits. Her products can be found and ordered at http://brushandpencil.com.

I specifically used the workflow on pages 99-101 for creating a monochrome underpainting, using her Texture Spray Fixative to fix the underpainting layer and subsequent glazing layers, then using her Titanium White and Touchup Texture for details, Faber-Castell Polychromos Colored Pencils and Prismacolor Premier White for highlights. I used Powder Blender to create glazing layers to complete the portrait similarly to how I would paint an oil painting with an underpainting and painting medium to create glazes. Thanks Lloyd for letting me use this great photo of you to create this “painting!” I hope you enjoy it!
