A Little Smile - original oil pastel portrait sketch

Here's more of my portrait sketching - this one using Sennelier oil pastels on carton - a newish surface that I love, reminiscent of the tan card used by Toulouse-Lautrec.  Lovely to work on, it's available from Judson Art.  This sketch is 12 x 9" - thanks so much for visiting my blog!

Hi there, Lucy - thanks for dropping by. You made a very good purchase, I've never read 'oil pastel for the serious beginner', but have heard it's a good and informative book

Oh it is a very informative book, with clear instructions on many projects on still life, landscape and portrait.
