Work in progress - Bertie

I have been working on Bertie's pet portrait today. The hardest thing about coloured pencil portraits is getting the colours correct, especially with coloured pencil, as they can't be mixed like paints can. The colours have to be built up with layers of different colours and you have to be careful not to make the colours 'muddy' and eventually with coloured pencil you can get to the stage when no more colour can be put down. It took me a while to get Bertie's colouring correct, but I think i've got there now. Here he is, it's going to be such a cute portrait...
