Youth, pastels on coloured paper, 37cm x 55cm

With just a few days before I fly off on my long awaited trip to Umbria, I thought I would upload this recent portrait completed of one of my daughter’s friends. 

Titled “Youth”, I really enjoyed playing with pastels on coloured paper and the ability to pick them up whenever you have a moment and do a little more work.  While I love my oil painting, it does take a little more time in preparation and clean up.

And now it is countdown to my week long master Portrait Class with Andrew James in Umbria.  Didn’t get selected for the Portia Geach, however the main thing is I have made my first entry and can go on from there.  Will look forward to seeing the exhibition on my return.
