My latest portrait completed “The Aviator”

I really enjoyed undertaking this portrait, from a photo by Bong Santos, and this is a glimpse of work in progress. The detail of the beard, wrinkles and eyes come out beautifully! You will be able to see this is a delightful image in full, completed in soft pastel and pastel pencils, at the Palace Art-fest, Hereford between April 28th and May 2nd where it will be for sale.

    Wow! Looks amazing! I’m truly in awe of pastel artists. I had my first play with pastels yesterday and they’re so difficult to control.

      Thank you for your kind comments. I have been using pastels and pastel pencils since I retired and they are my favourite medium. Have a look through my page and if you need any hints or tips please ask….or contact me here or through my website
