Princess 11"x14" Pastel Sold

This was a commission for a woman I met during my employment.    I created this painting from several photographs that were provided to me...two for the pose and one for a close up of the face and one to show light and color.  The surface I chose  to paint on was a dark navy blue mat suede board.  I selected mat suede board  becuase it allows multiple layering and supports fine details in a painting without smearing edges.  It is one of my favorite surfaces becuase it enhances the richness of color that pastellists love to express in their paintings.
