This is neat...I like the way the colors blend the woman into the background, with the shapes. http://www.wetcanvas.com/ubb/biggrin.gif
Matboard huh? Was there enough tooth to hold?
just curious. http://www.wetcanvas.com/ubb/wink.gif

I really like the patterns of the dress and background. It is hard to believe you did this with pastel! I have worked with pastels off and on...having a hard time getting the effect I want.

I must make a piece of art everyday for my own well being.

Lovely patterns and good composition.

The thing that gets me is Lady Di; to me it is sort of like painting Elvis. Sorry - but that is too sentimental/kitch for my taste.

Ravishing colors --getting a little Klimt-ish with the design. I like it.
BTW, do you fixative during the process? This is a large pastel, lots of work.

Beautiful and beautifully executed. http://www.wetcanvas.com/ubb/smile.gif

On the negative side, I am with Henrick, in regard to the Lady Di thing...
Why not do a portrait of somebody you know?
