Day 20 - A Pastel Portrait Commission

"Brooke"  (pastel, 24x18 inches) sold

Day 20 in my 30-Paintings-in-30-Days of November. I completed a portrait like this one a few days ago, and decided I would 'count' it in November's 30 paintings. This one is from last year. The clients have not yet picked up the current portrait, so I don't want to spoil any surprise. I'm glad I got a chance to post this one, because I also have good progress shots...

 Blending the initial layers...

 Adjusting proportional errors.

 Final highlights with pastel, smoothed in with pastel pencil.

Thanks for watching! Please share!
