I've been working on expanding my color pallet and application techniques with pastel these last few weeks. This is a portrait I finished of Gillian Anderson ( in X-files Scully garb ). Completed on colorfix paper ( of course, I absolutely love the toothy texture of this paper, and would highly recommend its use to any of you whom enjoy working with pastels ), the size is roughly 9 x 12.
I am currently working on a portrait of a friends pup, and will post soon. I always enjoy the transition between working on the human and animal form. Handling fur is quite different then handling skin, and its important to create a pallet that successfully represents the seperate dimensions between the two!
