This is a recent work, completed in May 2020. A portrait of my dear cousin Jorge Nasser Batarse. I experimented with Prismacolor color pencils, a gift from my daughter. The portrait is a layered composition of multiple colors to achieve the desired effect. In the end, I experimented blending the background with a cotton swab dipped in alcohol for a smoother finish. I will leave you with a warning, although the effect is fun to produce, it should be the last step in your work. The alcohol takes away the tooth of the paper and makes it nearly impossible to add further color.

My cousin was so pleased with the finished piece that he used the portrait as his Facebook profile picture; later on, I did a similar composition in watercolors for his father, and he did the same. Like most of my works, they are gifted to friends and family for the kindness and support.
