I finished this piece last week. Done on Colorfix paper (11 x 14), with an assortment of Unison, Sennelier, Rembrandt, and Nupastel....oh, and a couple of Schminke thrown in for good measure :) .

I did take photos for a 'step by step', but there aren't as many as I would have liked...I kept forgetting! I will post them later.

Nicely done! And an interesting crop of the figure!

I agree with Don about the interesting crop of the figure. I'm new to pastels so can't comment on your application of them on this portrait but I do like it.

I absolutely love this. The subject is beautiful, the color palette is delicate, and the crop of the figure is enticing. Beautifully done!

I like this one, the loose style is painterly passion.
