Life portraits 

We have been drawing pastel portraits in our life class this week. I enjoy portraiture and am quite pleased with these. Eyes are difficult. Especially when the model kept nodding off. My main problem is what to do with them. I don’t really want pictures of people I don’t know hanging on the wall.

  1. I really think your pastel portraits are quite nice. The second especially shows skill with the medium as well as the subject. If you mean you are looking for other artists to consider who did pastel portraits, you might look at Mary Cassatt or Berthe Morisot herself (one of your Manet portraits, the same). Enjoying your explorations a lot. Everyone has this stack of unknown portrait models growing in the corner. Sometimes I use them for competitive exhibit entries. Just store them flat with glassine covers. I look forward to your future posts!
