Pastel and pastel pencils on white paper – 12" x 16"
Work in process of a pastel I'm painting as a gift for my oldest sister, who turns 90 in May. It is based on a photo of her and her granddaughter holding her great granddaughter at her 80th birthday. There is a lot of detail so I thought I'd share the progress at a couple stages. I sketched main features with a charcoal pencil then an initial painting of the faces. Not much detail in the lower part yet since I tend to smear it while working on the faces.
