I agree, of the 3 this is my favourite as well. Great work Dima.
I have tried to complete a pastel portrait but they just dont come out as I would like and I end up stopping half way through in dissapointment, I dont have a problem with the actual drawing side of things, just the addition of colour. I think I have about 3 half finnished portraits sitting here, maybe I will pick up the courage to finnish one of them.......maybe.
Or I could stop looking at realistic colours and go semi abstract, as thats what they look like at the moment.
Have you come across any good books on pastel portraits Dima?
