Nikita is my great niece, painted from a reference photo by David, Nikita's uncle and my nephew. She is so fair it was quite a challenge and will still need some tweaking, getting the transparency of the skin is hard and this image makes her looks as though she has a dirty face but the original is more subtle. I have used the same method as with Charlie, disolving the pencil with Zest-it and blending with a cotton bud, sponge and fingers. I started the picture with dry pencils several months ago and it wasn't going right so it was relegated to the bottom of the pile for future consideration. Yesterday I was doing a short demonstration for a friends art group and decided to dig this one out and apply the solvent and I am pleased I did as it has come together well.
