Pastel - John In Pastel

"John in Pastel", 8 x 10, soft pastels on velour paper

Today our painting group had a 'micro' workshop on portrait painting led by one of the group, Mary Newman. We were to paint one of the other artists across the room. I chose to work in pastels today and chose John as my subject. He was across the room about 20 feet away! 

This is our last painting date inside and we are all looking forward to getting out of doors for the rest of the season.

I like your pastel portrait... a really nice likeness that I'm sure John enjoyed. Also want to mention the last two posts in oils. I love these. Beautiful job on them both.
