Colored pencil on Colourfix paper - May 2008

I've been working on this for a couple of years, yikes! It started mostly as an experiment to try out this colourfix paper. In between not working on it and doing other colourfix pieces, I learned a lot about applying color to this kind of surface and finally decided to finish this one. If I had to do it over I would chose a different color paper. It was difficult to overcome the background tone to make a more natural skin tone. Still, the colors blend so beautifully, it was a joy to do.
