Little Girl in Plaid and Black

I am quite excited about a new book I purchased "Colored Pencil Painting Bible" (Techniques for Achieving Luminous Color and Ultrarealistic Effects) by Alyona Nickelsen. I am trying out many of her techniques and here is one of my first full page illustrations ... can you believe this is all done with colored Pencils? (I did add some ink for fine lines) This is an amazing new use of colored pencils!

Colored pencils have always been one of my favorite mediums. This is a beautiful piece. I'mm going to have to get my hands on a copy of that book.
