Happy new year! I hope your start to 2015 has been a good one. I've been a bit under the weather, but I've been keeping myself occupied with a pastel portrait of my niece - it's been a long time since I've attempted one of these (and it shows!).
A4, pastel pencils and pastels on Strathmore 500 Series Charcoal Velvet Grey (which is actually a warm browny grey).
