Hugo the soldier


Traditional, coloured pencil

Hugo is a lovely little chap who im sure you will agree looks rather dashing in his uniform. Hugo is owned by my lovely Auntie​. The first portrait I have done with a uniform and the first done using water as a blender for my coloured pencils, but I’m really pleased with the outcome. I hope it wont be the last I really enjoyed doing this.
