The Message - original oil pastel portrait sketch

Here's another sketch on the Mi-Teintes paper - this time it's done on a warm shade that inspired me to use plenty of blues in her skin to cool it down.  I'm a big fan of cools anyway, so I was glad to have an excuse.  This sketch is about 8 1/2 x 8 1/2".  Thanks so much for visiting my blog!

Wonderful portrait, Connie. The blues are beautiful in her skin. I have only worked with steel grey paper but I'd like to try the orange tone for a change.

Thank you, Hilda - the orange paper turned out to be fun to work with, which surprised me.
