A recent portrait ...

 



Pastel portrait, 11 x 14 inches, drawn on Canson Mi Teintes paper.


For the actual drawing, I used a color photograph as a reference photo.
 This is a black and white copy I printed off to save
since I returned the original photograph.

During December I worked on some portrait commissions.  This one done in pastels/pastel pencils measures 11" by 14" and was drawn on Canson Mi Teintes Paper. The reference photo shown was one I printed off of an original color photograph.

Thank you, Minakichu, I appreciate your compliment. I also did one of her sister, I may post it later.

Enjoyed reading your blog this morning ♥

The thing about Cindy and her art is that she is a perfectionist. That is a great trait to have, but when she is working on her art work, I don't have a wife! Beautiful job!---and the portrait was a surprise gift, and the person receiving the gift absolutely loves it.
