Center of Attention

Faber-Castell Polychromos on Strathmore 300 Drawing Paper, photo reference from: Sally Robertson I completed this project for the Colored Pencil Magazine contest. The background is a little bolder than I would have liked, but I'm excited that I was able to blur the background convincingly!

Q&A with jocelyncb78

Cynthia Knox asked:
Such a fabulous piece, Jocelyn! You have done a beautiful job rendering a soft, lovely rose that has great dimension. And yes, you certainly did blend the background well! It is convincing and nicely muted to project the star subject forward and center stage.
jocelyncb78 answered:
Thank you, Cynthia! Blurring the background was a new challenge for me, and your tips in the class were very helpful!
