Oil pastel portrait of a newborn. I consider myself a beginner and have so much to learn! I am happy to find this site and hope to gain much insight and knowledge

That is very cute and delicate! Great job for a beginner! I'm a beginner too and I'm so afraid to tackle a portrait!

Lovely soft color.Obviously you're not a beginner to painting. Watch the value on the line thru the lips and the line beneath the lips. We all love to know what brands and surface and size too.

Looking forward to seeing more of your work!

It has been a while, but I use sennelier and Holbein ops. I believe this was canson paper.

Oh and paper size was 11 x 14

Stunning and gorgeous! Simply a beautiful child, you did a superb job on this piece. The background is perfect, soft w/light values that wraps the baby w/a peacefulness.

I agree w/Carly on the lip lines, but other than that this is truly a wonderful painting.
