“Najma” – Portrait of a Girl (Donated)


Colored Pencil on Paper

Portraiture Category




This colored pencil portrait was painted from Najma’s photo published in the Mercy Corpse Annual Calendar. (PC : Joni Kabana) I was moved by the innocence in the eyes of this child. I had to paint her to reflect my emotional response. I drew the drawing freehand, colored it with prismacolor colored pencils and blended it with odorless paint thinner.

It was invited to be displayed in Annual Food and Art Festival juried show and won “Best Portrait” award. It was accepted into local art club’s annual show and later into Regional Art contest.

The portrait was also published in a Colored Pencil Art magazine. I later donated the portrait to head office of MC at Portland.
