I like this Frank , it well drawn particularly as it out of your comfort zone.

A fine strong portrait Frank, I like your use of colour. I like coloured pencils very much, I suppose because all I ever want to do is draw. Faber is my choice, both water-soluble and not (Polychromos). I've read about Arteza, the pros seem to prefer Faber or Prizmacolour but a lot of users rave about Arteza. You certainly have a good result here...I look forward to seeing more.

Great portrait Frank, great style!

This has a great intensity Frank, like it a lot.

A very striking portrait, with a face full of stories and knowledge. Like how you have used your pencils so effectively to produce this lovely work Frank.

It's a great portrait Frank, fabulous colours, I'll be very interested in seeing how you progress with them.

What a great portrait, so colourful.
