On My Easel - oil pastel sketch of woman reading a letter

Just kinda fooling around here - I had the black and white drawing of the woman which I redid in oil pastel and then combined it with the interior.  It's done on Colourfix 12 x 9" paper.  I'll work some more on it and, I hope, without killing it.  I used Sennelier's set for portraits.  Colourfix black is so great to work with, although I think I'll use a lighter color for interiors from now on.  But the black for portraits really makes colors sing and I love it.  Thanks for stopping by!
