I just got a commission to do a portrait of a woman who has diamond earrings. I have never done diamonds in pastel. Any suggestions or comments? :confused:

Hi Midge,

Have you got a reference photo? If so, please post. I'm sure you'll get lots of help if you do.

without any reference or size/shape etc its hard to comment, but would imagine diamonds would be like any other shiny reflective surface to paint - where there is a sparkle, hit that with pure colour
