A Modest Woman - ACEO oil pastel portrait

Sorry to be so long in posting, but I've been so busy with oil paintings for shows, etc. and just have had little time for oil pastel.  I've missed it!  This tiny painting is on 3.5 x 2.5" Colourfix paper.  Working with unsharpened pastels makes for an interesting result on such a tiny support.  Fun, though!
More from the Holbein Portrait set:  32A 1 - 5 - a "non-color" which is a grey, I think.  Will dig around some more in that mess of a closet and see what else turns up from that set.  Thanks for stopping by!
