It feels so good to get back into pastels

It's been a dreadfully long time since I have last posted work on here. Funny how the subject matter I last left you with, is now the same subject matter for my new work. This is a pastel portrait I completed today, in about 6 1/2 hours. The size is 24 x 36 on colorfix paper ( my favorite ). I decided to have a bit of fun with this piece, and played around with color and tonal values. Even though I did this in crummy lighting, and took an equally crummy picture with my camera phone, I think this piece turned out fairly well. I just hope my dear hubby to be is happy with it, he is after all the main attraction in this piece :)
Cheers ~
