I found this incredible site, http://facesoftheearth.tumblr.com , with the most awe inspiring photos. There are face photos from all over the world. It was a hard choiceto pick one photo, but, I wanted a profile. I found this gorgeous woman. I had to attempt it.
She was started as a pencil sketch. I wanted to add some color. I used Primacolor colored pencils. I needed it to be more vibrant. I finished her with chalk pastels, which I am beginning to love. They require you to get your fingers into your work. The mess and feel of the chalk is mesmerizing!
