Colored Pencil Portraits

Colored Pencil Portraits

Colored pencils are a fun, fresh, immediate medium. The colors can be layered on textured paper so that the eye blends the tiny dots of pure pigment. The colors stay pure since they don’t mix together, as with paint. Colored pencils have recently become a serious art medium because several companies have begun to offer permanent, lightfast pencils.

These colored pencil portraits are drawn from photographs, preserving the precious times that have been captured with a camera. These portraits focus on the most positive aspects of your loved ones, to celebrate the spirit
