Little Man

This is a portrait of my friend's little boy Rishi, and is a gift to her. It is based on a reference photo and was done using watercolor pencils and pastel paint. The watercolor pencils are nice because their pencil form provides more accuracy in application than a brush, but with the added versatility of watercolor, the colors can be blended and made more vibrants by brushing over them with water. I used pastel for the face and neck to keep it soft, and for the background for ease of coverage. 9" x 12" Watercolor pencil and pastel on paper
