Pastel Portrait

A portrait of "Jeff" taken from a school photo. The photo I worked from was taken with a flash, so there were black shadows I had to eliminate when I painted this portrait. Photos taken in natural light are much better to work from!

Lady With Pearls;

This lady was a pencil study. I bought myself a set of beautiful derwent drawing pencils. I used the sepia tones to achieve the affect here , which went beautiful with the textured surface of the paper . I look forwards to more portraits with my lovely set of derwent pencils.
