Art: Amy Robbins

These portraits, by UK based artist Amy Robbins were rendered using colored pencils. Colored.freaking.pencils. The third is image is actually a work in progress "that will never be finished, most likely." I think in this case, unfinished is exactly what it needs to be.
These images make me think I haven't realized the full potential of my prisma color box that has been sitting, untouched, in my art drawer for years. Wow. Check out more of Amy's work here and here

Oh my goodness these are incredible! They look like photographs! Or else they look like they were done with watercolors, not colored pencils. Amazing!

I saw one of her works in an article and couldn't stop staring. Flabbergasted would be the word.
So amazed by her talent.
