A really beautiful portrait, Colombe. I love it!
Oh thank you! I messed up the eyes, they are looking in a different direction….. Well, if everything was perfect, it wouldn’t be a painting, would it? Thanks for your comment Stan.

Eh bé macarel ! tu nous en réserves des surprises !!! Tout simplement GÉNIAL…tout est super bien fait dans ce portrait, tout est parfaitement bien maîtrisé…(quelle chance : elle n’a pas une seule ride et en plus, elle a un sourire magnifique sur de belles dents..bref, tout pour plaire !!)
Hey Corinnette, I started it when I was in Angers. I just did the finishing touches today. Maman et Papa were intreagued, I guess they had never previously seen anybody work with pastels before their eyes. Bisous
Very pretty! I though it was a picture.
Thank you very much, WaleskaL. However much I try to make things not look like a picture, somehow I can’t…. Thanks for you comment.

Craig all your comments are lovely, thank you so much for all the attention you give me.
Looooove the color of her face, how do you do that, the skin color, you’re very good at it. xoxoxo
I find the actual drawing of the face the hardest thing to do in a portrait. The resemblance matters, so I tend to spend a lot of time working on that and by the time I’m satisfied with it, I am really relieved! The colouring comes more naturally to me, but you know, with pastels you apply a little bit of colour and then rub it in with your finger and you do that layer by layer until it’s close to the real thing. Great thing is: if you mess up, you can always rub it out with an eraser…….. Easy!Thank you for what you said Hasmig. Hugs
A beautiful portrait!
Lovely and warm. Smiles from Jane:-)
A very impressive work!
