Portrait Session


What fun I had today. 
Got to the session on time, great model and the sun is shining.
Pastel, 11x14 sanded paper, 2 hour session
Check out the winter class schedule for full day model sessions at the Art Center in Butler

I took this back to the studio and fiddled with the background some to bring his face forward.
 (Boy the color really changes depending on where I photograph it.)

Another comment... I have been sampling pastels and am most satisfied with Terry Ludwig pastels.  I can't wait to share some at the next Butler session.
