Hey Li:wave: thanks for hosting and the great ref pics:thumbsup: well what with real life,old age ailments and the heatwave we are having I have missed a couple of weeks,the heat has melted my muse so I thought if I do something quick I will have to finish it:eek: a piece of mountboard size 20x16,allowing for a 2" mount my painting will be 16x12,so 15 mins with just the sides of soft pastels.

Hey Kay,Li, Noula:wave: thanks for your comments,the hardest thing was to get something down on paper,now I can begin to draw into it ands used a brush and moved some pastel around,after all pastel dust is a watercolour pigment:) but it was so hot it was drying out quickly,so some progress,

I hope the weather is a bit more agreeable for you today. Stay cool and well.
I enjoyed seeing how you start your work, I like the simple free marks you make that still tell so much about the subject. He is emerging as one cool dude.

I hope the weather gets better. I don't know what a heat wave is like because it's always hot here. But stay cool!
Lovely pastel work!
