Double Portrait (xpost)

(xposted from Pastels)

I recently finished this double portrait I would like to share. This portrait is of a family friend with her late husband. Pastels on Canson, 21 x 14inch. The background has actually photographed a little darker than it actually is.
Thanks for looking, comments always appreciated.

Holley, this is a great Portrait -- the clarity is wonderful, and I really love their eyes. Great work.

From one South Australian to another.
Val.

Re: Double Portrait (xpost)

This is nicely done. I like the way you've captured the character in the faces and the texture of the hair.
