In the midst of working on other commissions I acquired a rush order! A repeat customer, which is even better! The client that requested Diamond's portrait wanted a portrait to give to her husband for his birthday. It took about 6 hours and I finished on time! I'll leave it over night as is and then wait for tomorrow to matt it incase I want to change anything or do last minute tweaks.
I did learn from this portrait that I should work with gloves or something when I blend in pastels with my fingers because the sand paper as given one of my fingers a "sand burn". Ow.
Medium: Pastels on sanded pastel paper
