    wow! look at her expression! beautiful :)

  • Thank you so much Elizarose – in the reference photo she is actually frowning, so I wanted to soften her expression a little, hopefully that worked :)

    Beautiful! Do these have to be put behind glass like normal pastels or sealed with anything! Just curious :)

  • Actually Dianne, I spray three coats of fixative, followed but three coats of satin varnish, which does cause a little sinking and dulling of colour, but so long as the skin tones stay fairly true, I’m not too worried.

    Beautiful work Karen, I love the little pinky sticking out like that. It’s a nice detail and suits the pink in the rest of the artwork perfectly. ;-)

  • For some reason Arie I knew you would notice the pinky – you are always so observant and thank you for your lovely comments!!! :)
