One of my Hero's

This is my Grandfather that past away 10yrs ago he was and always will be one of my greatest hero's.
I worked this in pastels and its 9x12 in size, the picture has been a real challenge for me. I have said before that painting the ones I love is nearly impossible for me! Any comments on how to improve this are more then welcome
Thanks for looking!

Redsy!!!!!!! Such a wonderful tribute to your Grandfather... You did a lovely job on the likeness - it's truly there. I can see the love for him in your drawing - you don't have a problem in this area at all, you only think you do....

Well done HUN..

Chooky

Redsy...I agree with Colleen....I think you did a marvelous job! You've even captured that slight color change the glasses reflect on his face. This is a wonderful portrait Redsy!

WOW, what are you complaining about woman? This is absolutely gorgeous. You've captured the "love" here. I agree with what the girls have said too.

Just think what this painting will mean to his great- and great-great grandchildren, Redsy... You have a wonderful heirloom to pass down to your family....

Thanks Chooky,Karen, Teanne, and Justjo!!!
The colors are actually more true to original, but the flash on my digi grabbed and it paled my picture!
Thanks again for looking
