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 :-)
Joining the party here
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, ValerieReplyDelete

Hi, You are invited to share this with Feline Art Friday:ReplyDelete
she's lovely and I LOVE that phrase, listen to the moon she knows, wow, I love that!ReplyDelete
I think you did well. Faces are really hard.ReplyDelete
They are lovely paintings! I think it can be very difficult to be detailed with pastels, they are a challenge to me ;-)ReplyDelete
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.ReplyDelete
This is a great photo to draw from. You are doing a wonderful job. I really like your journal page too.ReplyDelete
