Three Young Ladies

Another portrait that I truly enjoyed doing is finished. Of course I don't think I have met one I really didn't like doing. Working in colored pencils is definately a slow process and at times I have thought of switching mediums to something else. Especially since I have other employment. Then again, it's the process that I love. Well, that and portraits. It's the detail and the inch by inch process. The blending, the colors, all of it, and then it all comes together. Sometimes slowly but I wouldn't change it. To me it has nothing to do with the time it takes. It's getting a likeness and building it step by step. It's very meditative to me.
My favorite time to work on portraits is in the middle of the night. It's quite and peaceful and it gives me time to reflect. So now I'll introduce the completed portrait of the Three Young Ladies.
