Last week (03/09/07) we had an excellent model. I did this conté crayon portrait then.

This week I decided to keep going with the pastels after that commission mentioned earlier on the blog. This one is unfinished. I would have liked the model to resume the pose after the first 25 minutes but it was not to be. I’m liking the pastels better the more I use them. I have to try and move away from my tendency to overdetail all the areas (which I also do in oil painting).
