This is still in the sketch stage, where I am just feeling my way. Maybe I'll continue with this, or possibly begin anew. But I love the combination of colors with her red hair, so I will undoubtedly spend more time on this portrait. Next thing is to get the model back! The black Colourfix paper (12 x 9") is wonderful for oil pastels - the pastels can be layered one upon another and produce a sort of glow, it seems to me. And the little bits of black gritty surface that show through. I love it!!! Thanks so much for stopping by!
