A Pastel Portrait for Today

"Les"
9" x 12"
pastel on Wallis sandpaper
Hubster walked by this morning while I was on the computer.  He asked what I was doing?  "Getting inspiration!" says I.   I have been looking at lots of portraiture lately...had this great photo of my stepdaughter and went for it.  Looking at it now, there are a few tweaks I will do.  Pastel is my one very true love in mediums - because it's my old favorite and I know what it will do and what it won't do for me.
