Re: Attempt at pastel

Looks great to me - thought it was from life as it had that feel to it.

Re: Attempt at pastel

Thank you, Jools,

It was taken from a black and white picture. Maybe that is why it looks like it is from life since I had to make up my own colors. I've taken it to have it framed. It should be done on Saturday. I am excited about getting it back.

Thanks again for your comment. Blessings, Barbie

Re: Attempt at pastel

I have this impression that you are going to enjoy them very much (pastels that is), especially in the human figure. Be patient in finding what combination of pastel and paper works for you but experiment. It's really great when it works! Your painted figure is beautiful! I did have the same issue about the hand but agree if you cover it with hair.

Re: Attempt at pastel

Thank you one and all. I did work with the face and fixed the line that runs down the cheek bone. I slanted the line of the face just a bit more toward the shoulder. Lightening the line of the cheek bone helped a lot! Now the face no longer looks divided and no longer looks like a hand/face or whatever. I would show you a picture, but the painting has been sent to the framer. I hope to have it returned soon. All of your views and critiques helped with the end product.

I do intend to stay in the dust as this new approach/medium has a way of making me loosen up in my work. Blessings, Barbieanne
