Greg Pastel


Greg was one of the three models we used for the model session at Butler Art Center this past Saturday.
The mouth was challenging because his fist pulls it to one side. 

A great place to learn technique is the Judy Carducci dvd on portrait painting.  The dvd is so full of great info... could watch over and over and still learn more. In fact we had Greg sit in a similar pose to the model on the dvd.

16x20 inches, pastel on mounted Wallis paper

Dear Maria,
Lovely work! Especially, face expression is super. I look forward to a process. These days, I put aside portraits and enjoy cartoons. Hahaha?! Very much relaxing.
Best wishes, Sadami
