So I went with another portrait in oil pastels on Canson Mi-Teintes (9x12 inches). A black teen girl with gorgeous skintones from a PMP photo again. I could see all sorts of colors in her skin which excited me but was difficult to capture...even harder to capture on photo...sigh!
Colors are a little bit less muted especially those oranges in her cheeks but oh so hard to correct. Her face is also a bit more elongated in the painting.
