Pencil portrait of actor Martin Freeman as Bilbo Baggins in the new Hobbit movie. This is my first attempt at doing a portrait in coloured pencils instead of pastels and it may be my last! I did it on pastel paper which was probably a mistake as the tooth of the paper prevented smooth blending. Ah well, we learn by our mistakes, don’t we?

Derwent Inktense coloured pencils on Clairfontaine grey pastel paper A4.
Original available.

I’ll put it up as an all occasions card for any Hobbit fan

Sorry Martin, I’ll try to do better next time….

    I like this image very much Hilary. If you don’t try new ways and methods along the way, you never know just how well your drawings will turn out. Nice work. Susan

  • Thank you Vette and you are right of course, if you don’t try anything new you don’t learn anything new. You are very encouraging!
