I think I'm really going to enjoy this portrait thing!

Working on an other portrait tonight, and I'm am really beginning to enjoy taking my time to complete a drawing, working on the shading, blending and highlights. I was a bit sceptical about the attempting portraits, but I think I'm going to like it a lot. I'm usually too tired to take out my paints and stuff by the time I finally get home in the evening. But a bit of pencil or charcoal drawing, that is manageable. And so relaxing and satisfying.

This is a charcoal and pastel work in progress. I can't wait to continue working on it tomorrow!

    Oh my! I love this. Kudos to you!

  2. That is absolutely beautiful!
    I always wished I had some sort of talent in that area. But nope, my drawing is B.A.D. :)

    Thanks for linking up at focus52!

  3. Beautiful portrait so perfectly matched by the softness of the pastel and charcoal finish. It helps to have such a pretty model too ;o)
