Paint Party Friday

Still playing with pastels...



... portrait attempt from a photo - looks more like her mother, though! I need to firm up her chin and deepen the shading on her face. And I must get some proper paper for pastels - watercolour paper doesn't cut it!!

And a bit of play in my art journal counting down to the new moon tomorrow :-)

  1. Nice work. Portraits are really, and you have done well. I wish I could firm my chin with a few brush strokes! Have a lovely weekend, Valerie

  8. They are lovely paintings! I think it can be very difficult to be detailed with pastels, they are a challenge to me ;-)
    Happy PPF

  9. I often use photos as a reference when I draw. I don't know how you are able to do pastels....lol I've tried to use them, but it just isn't my medium. You did a wonderful job.
