The Evolution of a Pastel Portrait

15th Oct 2015 Soft Pastel Portrait

Last year I have discovered soft pastels. I know they have been out there all the time, but I never thought I would be able to handle that medium. Being a student in London gave me access to a new art world (and art supply stores).

Since then I have bought all kinds of pastel sets, and painted a bunch of portraits. I am still focused on portrait, but one day I will try some landscape as well. Here is a step by step guide of my latest pastel portrait:
