Little Girl Pastel Portrait

10"x14"
Pastels on Canson Me-Tientes paper
This morning I decided to paint something small.True, its 10"x 14"- still I am calling it 'small' because I did it entirely using the side of my soft pastel sticks, no use of pastel pencils.Its tough to let go the control of the pencil, but I managed some how :) The paper was red toned so I chose the subject with a dark skin tone. It took me about two hours.The piece is loose but presentable, what do you say?

  1. There is a three dimensional feel, a good sense of depth. I like it

    1. I used red toned paper to compliment her skin, dark skinned people are always fun to paint- though I don't get many models with that attribute.Thank you so much for your kind comments.
