Talking A somewhat crumby portrait....LOL

Ok, so I got threatened with exposure if I shared this one but I like to live dangerously!!!! He's not really a redhead but he is on red paper!!!

This one is on terracotta colored Art Spectrum colorfix paper... measures 7.5 x 8 inches approx. About 3-4 hours work... Mmmm.. men seem harder for me to do for some reason... must be the whiskers or something. This one is a bit crumby.....


And thank you to all the redheads that have sent me pics for my series... YAY!!!

Well, Colleen, you've WOW'd me again.... You are so GOOD... and your portraits are exceptional, definitely should be posted in Portraiture forum also... (And I didn't know Crumby was such a hunk )

Great drawing!

I really like it. I don't know if I can ever show one of my pieces, not with all the beautiful pieces I see here. You are quite good.

Hey thanks Dawn:: and for the advice re the portrait forum....

Trish...... lol.....

Sandy:: Thanks for the compliment!!

JustJo, one of my favourite WCer's... thank you so much!!

Kelly:: Thank you and we will be looking forward to seeing your work. All work is great and should be shared... We are all critical of our own work hun and it is hard to push it out there... I know I feel timid about doing it here with some of the truly talented pastel artists that show there work like Sandra, Marsha, Jackie, Redsy, etc.... just to name a few... but I have also learned a lot from looking at their work.... so come on now ... don't be shy!!!

Mo:: Thanks hun.... have your pic in my ref photos now... so look out!!!! LOL
