WIP - Face of Symmetry

I rarely post WIP images, but we have been away on holidays and so it seems to have been a while between posts and I'm also still in holiday mode so will take my time with this portrait. Can you guess who this is - she is supposed to have the most symmetrical face in the world and she certainly is stunning. I have been a little naughty and just took an image from Google images, but this is more for the exercise of doing a portrait in pencils on Pastelmat. I am really loving this combination of mediums and will probably start doing my commissions this way, rather than on the drafting film from now on. Happy Australia Day to all my Aussie friends too!! :)

It's looking wonderful already Karen! Are you using colored pencils or pastel pencils?

How intriguing - can't guess who she could be??

Looks great though Karen - I really love seeing your WIPs. They are like magic, images of real people appearing out of nowhere!

Hope you had a good time in Bligh country (or maybe not after March...)

I totally agree, I love the medium combination. It really brings your subject to life.

Thank you Mona - using coloured pencils here. I love pastels, but don't like the mess and this seems to give similar results, but no mess :)

Thank you heaps Dors.

LOL Cindy - I'm about to post another WIP and I doubt you will still probably know who she is until I work on her mouth. Had a lovely time in Qld :)

Thank you Wendy - I haven't seen a lot of artists who work with the pencils on Pastelmat, but I think it has a lot of potential :)
