Little Leoda - original oil pastel portrait

This portrait is done on black Colourfix paper - nice and gritty. It's 12 x 9" and mostly done with Sennelier, but also with some Caran d'Ache and Holbein. A fun little drawing that I enjoyed doing. I just bought some more of the Caran d'Ache lime and turquoise greens, plus some more blues, greys and flesh tones of this brand that I simply cannot do without. Yum! Can't wait to get started - hope you will check back to see what's posted in a couple of days.
Also have a new supply of Colourfix. As much as I love Pastelbord, I'm still experimenting with framing techniques. Any readers with ideas on this? I'd love hearing from you! Thanks so much for stopping by!
