Pastel portrait of Izzy

Ā Sunday Sketches 29 Faces September 2012

And I have my first face for 29 Faces! Started off as a quick sketch, but actually took me most of the day. Here is a pastel portrait of my youngest daughter, two and a half year old Izzy.

Isabel pastel portrait

Izzy, soft pastel on canson paper, approx. 210 x 297mm

It has its problems, including still being slightly cross-eyed…I might go back and fiddle with that…but I’m sick of fiddling. I gotta call it. Though Hubby says we can hang it up on the wall, so I better fix it otherwise it will drive me nuts.

It is only my second ever pastel portrait so I might just list it off as educational. But I will hang it up anyway. It is time for me to stop thinking my work isn’t good enough!

And this is also my submission for Sunday Sketches this week. Don’t forget to drop on by to see the other sketchers, wonderful works in progress out there.

Best wishes,
Liz
