I must be getting better ... tonight I had the urge to put pastel to paper .. and this is what emerged.  From the changed reference image on the computer screen.  I hope to be able to continue to produce some interesting portraits in the future as my eyesight improves. Pastel and pastel pencil on Fabriano Tiziano pastel paper.  I used a bit of a limited palette here .. about 12 colours in all.
Also uploading the preliminary sketch for this pastel.

Hmmm .. did I say I was going to keep this blog moving despite my illness?  Well I have been a bit slack in that direction and there has been no new art coming from me in weeks.  So once again here is a very old one from long ago.  It's a pastel pencil sketch on Fabriano Tiziano pastel paper.  Hopefully things will be looking up soon.
