A Bit of Blue - original oil pastel portrait sketch

I feel kind of dishonest saying this is 'a portrait', because it's not anyone in particular.  I mean, it started out being someone on TV.  Then she moved and someone else came into view so she has that woman's nose, then another actress's lips, and so on.  I like to do that and sometimes it can be pretty interesting.  Just sort of whiling away the time.  Also, it was kind of dark and I wasn't sure which colors I was actually using - just knew they were approximately the right ones.  It's a good drawing exercise, I think, and what better to draw with than oil pastel?  This piece is on 7 x 5" Pastelbord.  Thanks for looking!
