To celebrate 11 years of being married to my favorite person in the world, I decided to do his portrait for the first time. I loved the challenge of doing stubble for my first time and his eyebrows too. It was a change from the baby portraits I've done so many of. For this portrait I used Caran d'ache colored pencils, along with a black faber-castell one as well. It was done on Strathmore 500 Bristol board plate surface. After 25 years as an artist I decided to take up colored pencils, I invested in a high quality set of pencils and paper and have been loving every second of the challenge. I'm excited to see what growth I can have as I continue to learn this new medium. Happy Anniversary Bruce! Love you so much.
