Jessica ..

Another small pastel drawing done recently. This is Jessica .. although she is unrecognisable from the reference photo .. I have given her a little lift with a new colourful hairdo. This one is 18 x 21cm on Canson Mi Teintes pastel paper (smooth side). I experimented with the background on this .. completely removing it at one stage and replacing it with this one.

Beautiful pastel drawing, Rosalie. I like the lift. The shape of her hair and the color with subtle reflections on the forehead and shoulder make this portrait quite nice.

Rosalie,
Jessica is fabulous. I love how you have balanced her and left the lower part somewhat unfinished. I also really like the transition of color in her hair. It is so beautifully done.

Sandy, Thanks for your comments. I like to make the hair exciting. Also, I am a bit of a 'less is more' fan .. hence the unfinished bits. :)
