This is a pastel version of the drawings I have been creating and posting for a while now. It was first done in pencil, rough, then in felt tip, quickly, now it is done with pastel pencils. The two small images are copies from earlier posts. To see them larger as well as comments, go to, ["Lady in Lace" drawings.]
The pastel is about 11 inches high as an image but would be framed somewhat larger with the background. It was done on a gray toned pastel paper. It was done with ONLY pencils. That means no sticks and no smudging of any kind. Each color is created by the cross-hatched overlaying of small lines. I think this gives it a soft but painterly look and feel.
The final image at the bottom is obviously a close up of the face to show some of the line details.
