Cameo Portraits

This lovely young lady was created with a new type of pastel called PanPastels and the pastel is applied...get this...with sponges! 

However, not being one to turn down a challenge, I persevered...and here is one completed image. I love the colors that can be obtained...there is a learning curve with using a utensil rather than the pastel stick itself and not all the colors are available but all in all I was very pleased, as was the client, with the end results!

My cameo pastels of one subject are created on an acid free 9 x 12 surface.  This charming young lady has a lovely, big smile in which both  her upper and lower teeth can be seen :-) In cases like that, in which her natural tendency is to smile, a portrait created from an angle solves the problem!
