New WIP 1 "My Grandma" DONE!!!!! see last post

So I have fully caught the pastel bug and last night spent around 3 and a half hours working on a Pastel portrait of my Grandma. She turned 90 this year and I dont see her that often as I live in Canada, and her in England. She is a legend in my family and I just saw her when i visited home.

Please comment,

I aim to make her look a little older and touch up most of the picture. Also have to finsh hand and arm and background.

cheers,

Cordy

Looks great so far! I'd say you've caught on to using pastels extremely quickly!

I agree with making her look a bit older, she certainly doesn't look 90 in your drawing! (although I don't know how old the reference picture you used is).

You got a lot done in 3 hours! The only thing that looks a bit off is the glasses... they look slightly crooked and uneven. Great job though, and keep us posted!

I love the detail. Of course that could be that you drew the picture pretty big and it's shrunk down for us here. I like the colors you are chosing and the proportions are coming along swimmingly. Something seemed off about the thickness of the arm... but that could just be me.

yeah the arm in the reference looks a bit odd too, its the way she was posing. The size of this is 14" × 17" on Bristol Vellum.

Again using the PanPastels and other pastels for detail.

this is the reference
