I’m sharing with you a portrait from before Christmas. This was a birthday gift for my client’s friend. It’s soft pastel on Hahnemuehle velour paper, 12x16in.

Here is during first stage of work, with few pastels I was using at the moment. As you can see, even in so small drawings I use mainly pastel sticks. They all have at least one sharp edge to make fine details and most of pastel pencils are to hard to use on velour (but there are exceptions).
