A little painting

Hi everyone! I have a very tough week, my 3 year old daughter, Abby, was sick. I slept very little taking care of her and I am so happy she is much better tonight.

I wanted to share this little 4"x6" collage painting on deep edge canvas.
In this painting I use my new favorite pencil "Nero" for Cretacolor. This pencil was recommended to me by the amazing artist Karmel Timmons (I met her at an art festival). It is a charcoal that has a little oil in it so it won't smudge so much.
I hope you like it.
Good night ♥♥♥

Hi Adri!

Oooh, I love the new painting! She is just precious. Thanks for the tip on the Nero pencil...I'm a sucker for trying out new art supplies (I need more art supplies like I need a hole in the head)!

Have a wonderful week, hon!

Nero pencil tip: Thanks! Can only find in a box of 12, and there are 5 different types of hardness. Which one are you using? Thank You for sharing this tip.

Your painting is beautiful, as are all of your paintings - I am trying to paint in this style myself but I am stumbling in the dark lol - cheers Vania

What a precious painting! Her face is so soft and sweet. I will have to look into that Nero pencil. My mom is a colored pencil artist...not sure she has used those either.
Hope this week is bright and sunny for you!!

It's exquisite! I love those little curls at the tips of her hair. I hope you're able to catch up on your sleep.

absolutely beautiful. I LOVE her dress. Isn't it fun to find new and improved supplies to use? I have more than I could ever use, myself!

Hola Adriana, hace poco que te sigo, me encanta tu pintura, está llena de color y dulzura. He visto en tu perfil que hablas español, lo que es un alivio, puesto que con el ingles me defiendo muy mal, asi es que si me lo permites prefiero hacerte los comentarios en español.
Un abrazo!!
