Party Dress ..

Today I abandoned the housework and decided to do some pastel work. Well ... it started to rain so there was no use doing the washing. hehe! Any excuse will do. I used a black and white reference photo for this and changed it quite a bit. It's 14 1/2" x 9" on Fabriano pastel paper.
I used a variety of pastels and some pastel pencil.

Hi Rosalie, This is really wonderful. I love the way you have cropped the figure with part of the head cropped off. Polly Hammett does this too so you are in good company!

Tonia, Cropping the head is something that I seem to do quite often.
