Pastel on Velour
This is a painting that I've wanted to do for a very long time but was just hesitant about that first step! The reference photo is very intimidating and challenging!
So, in order to keep myself working on it, I'm posting it as a wip. If it ends up as I envision, I may enter it into an online art contest. It was the announcement of this contest that was the final push for me to start the painting so I think I ought to do it. We'll see how this ends up though.
