Portrait in Soft Pastels of the son of an artist colleague… his photo with permission

Slightly smaller than A4 on colourfix pastel paper

A revised version of that previously posted

Although I have only been using pastels for a couple of years the demand for my pastel portraits seems to be increasing so I have decided to focus on this aspect of my art during 2012 and am devoting a ‘spare room’ to making pastel dust in Ivy Cottage as well as The Kington Gallery ! To have received an ‘Artist of the Month’ award this January in ‘Painters Universe’ here on Red Bubble is a humbling and wonderful Kick Start to 2012
