Just random blogging.

I used to do a lot of stuff in pastels ,chalks & charcols.
Black charcol & white chalk was always my preference with portraits. The bigger the better so I could fugde & blend the detail.

I like you pastels, simple, pleasent vibrant colours.

I think that you captured his likeness very well, although he does seem to have an excessively long neck! :-)

While I always like the use of color, this may have come out better if you used black and white.
