    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.

    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
