She's exquisite, Bill! Pastel? Really? Looks like an oil. Is it oil pastel?
exquisite! funny, we both worked from photos today. I really love this......it is a stunner!
Thanks Cyndi! I don't think they are oil pastels, I have those, butused the more chalky type. I had towash my hands several times duringthis. All the blending and smeringwith my fingers,got messy.Thanks Celeste! I was in the studio this weekend doing some workfor a local pub/eatery. (sign painting)I needed to take a break and have some art time. Art time is good!
This is lovely! I really like the feel and look of pastels, but can't stand the dust; I probably would do better at it though than I do with oils (at least the control part). Oh well!
Thanks Judy! Pastels are the halfway point between painting and drawing.As a kid, I drew all the time. It's good to revisit those roots!(I don't mind the dust,but I have to stop and wash my hands, from all the smering and blending)
Thanks Bill for visiting my blog. I appreciate your comments. It's why I do it, so people can move towards the truth. Your blog is beautiful. I love arts and crafts but don't think I could ever learn to paint. I love your work. It grabs me and make me lean it. Thanks for sharing.
Bill, this is stunning! I love the light on her face and hair. I also love her beautiful doe eyes~~~
Hi Marissa! Thanks for stopping by.Your blog is helpful indeed!Jan! Hi! Good to hear from you.I have been without phone & internet for almost a week! Turns out the connection at the wall was bad. I have many messages and catching up to do.I feel like Laural and Hardy in one person, I hope things get back to normal.
Truly precious portrait, love the expression, reminds me of a photograph by Sarah Moon.
This picture is so intriguing and mysterious. The dark background and the light are smoky and sad. A beautiful and moving picture.
