Quick Portrait Session

I went to a portrait session this morning
 and thought I would work in pastels.
I love the portrait sessions (Associated Artists of Butler County
because they are so casual, no pressure and a warm group. 
I was too busy to go lately, 
and forgot what a nice opportunity this is. 
 I could have used about 20 more minutes to 
work the shirt and tidy up a bit.
Total work time, about and hour and a half 
on 11x14 ish bristol board that I put a pastel ground on.

Maria, you really caught his gentle, sensitive looks and his expression. This pastel is wonderful.
