Tough little cookie


Well, the challenge ref for an online portrait painting group I belong to was a toughie this time round - cute kid, but very even, soft light and not too many shadows, which always makes it harder to convincingly model the shapes of the face. I decided to give it a go in pastels.

So, I went a bit mad with the colours... But I do kind of like it...

Pastel on pastelmat, approx 7 by 10". Reference by babasteve on flickr, thank you once again!
