Figure after a pastel by an american artist whose name I cannot remember.
Oil pastel on white Hahnemuhle pastelpaper.
Pastels are Goldfaber, van Gogh and Sakura.

Excellent oil pastel, Dick! What are the dimensions? I'd be interested to learn the name of the artist. Perhaps someone here will recognise it! :)

thank you all for the kind comments!
E-J this is 48 x 36 cm.
In the original the figure was reflected in a mirror whre you could also see a bed and stuff behind her and some lamp(s) beside the mirror. Found it on a site of mostly oils and only one or two pastels, the link was provided by someone here on WC.
Had a try on Google to refind the site but I did not succeed.

Thanks Dark_Shades.
E-J, Name of the artist remains a mystery for the time being, but I did find a pic of the original pastel on another computer.
Great work don't you think?

Dick ~ a gorgeous piece ~ I clicked on the 'Properties' of the image you posted and I see it's called 'Nudestudyklein'... a clue to the identity of the artist, perhaps?

And I forgot to mention, Dick, that one of the things I liked most about your version was that blue background ~ just sets it off beautifully ~ I'm quite surprised to see that it wasn't in the original. Nice one :D

ha ha, it's obvious you don't know any Dutch E-J :D

Why's that, Soap, does klein mean 'small' as it does in German? Or were you not going to bother to clarify. It's also a name, so I thought it might be a clue, that's all.

Yes it does - sorry, you are better at your languages than I gave you credit for. Who knows, it might that this piece is actually by somebody named Klein.......
