I’ve just finished drawing this pastel portrait, my first portrait of this year. I really love working with pastels! They are so soft and forgiving, and you can build up the layers step by step, which is how I love to work.

I must say I always find it hard to get an accurate image of a pastel portrait. This is the best I could get it, but in reality it’s way softer, more velvety…

Anyway, I’m really happy with the result and pastel definitely is one of my favorite mediums! 

Pastel pencil, hard pastel, and soft pastel on watercolor paper.

  1. Great portrait! The pastels give it a very soft look, almost like a dream. Really enjoying your blog, long time reader but first time commenting.
