This will look very humble after the last one!
This is a little 5 x 7 on Pastelbord using Prismacolors. It is of my niece and is supposed to match the two I did of my daughters that I gave to my mother.
This little project has reminded me just how much I enjoy working on Fisher 400 and just how much working on Pastelbord is a struggle. Why would I even use Pastelbord? Just because it can be varnished and framed without glass. Its ok, despite the struggle, for still-lifes and even gives them a pleasant illustrative quality, but for portraits its just not worth it. & then there is the grain problem, unless you want to add watercolor, solvent or wear out your wrist with a blending brush, then you are left with the grain which in the case of portraits I find distracting.
So I fulfilled my promise to my mother and back to Fisher for my next portrait!
