Portrait of an Artist 1 & 2

Pastel #1 8 x 10
Pastel # 2 8 x 10

Two more studies of figures. Challenging to get some detail but not too much. I like doing these exercises. I am entering this in a painter's challenge. Let me know your choice!


  1. Oooh.... these are wonderful I really love your treatment for the jeans and shadow. I prefer the top one because the tone seems a little darker and therefore dramatic and dynamic to me.

  2. Both are nice. I like the way the top one flattens out and becomes a little abstract, and I like the stronger lines and contrast in the lower.
