Re: Pastel Portrait
First of all, thank you all for yur replies. It encourages me to keep on going and paint and paint and paint and POST.
Dany you are right about the nose, I am working on it. I am glad I kept her looking young in the portrait, not easy.
Mandy, I thought her forehead was a bit big also I will double chek that although I think it id right.. maybe darkening the hair on the edges near the skin?
Angela, I used first layer with hard chalky pastels and second and thrid layer with soft chalky pastels. Rembradt pastels on Sennelier pastel paper.
I will give some hints on a thread soon about steps to approach a colorfull skin tone, which is something I had trouble with and have leared here at WC, There is one strating on friday by Dollardays, Nora. Don't miss it.
Jerome, I had a little trouble with the lips since she had a weird expression in her mouth, I was worried about it. Guess it turned out right.
Terry, I have been fighting with colors, but getting there and trying to play the strokes one way, is that wrong? I tried to go different ways once and it was very difficult but I am definetely going to try again. I just finished another one of my husband with more mixed way strokes. Will see
Thank you all again,
