Coloured Pencil Tutorials

I am often asked how I produce a portrait, from where I start, to the order in which I create each element. In order to try and answer these questions, I have decided to create this section, which will show the creation of various paintings step-by-step. I intend to add more tutorials soon, but have the uncanny ability of forgetting to scan paintings at different stages until it is too late! I am self-taught, so have developed my own unique approach to working from my own practical experience. Every artist has his or her own technique, so there is no right or wrong way of doing things. I tend to start at the top and work my way down, other artists always begin with specific features, such as the eyes. I do it my way simply because I started out using graphite, which is very unforgiving if you should rest your hand on an area already created - it smudges! I hope you will find this section of interest and maybe benefit from my experience!
