Vanessa Finito 44" X 30"
Sort of. I can see some spots I do not care for which I have just touched up. They always show up when you post.Photographing work has been tough lately- even for pastels as we have had nothing but rain, rain, rain. My model is dying to go to the beach- think tan lines- which I will have to work around- but fortunately the weather has been lousy for that. We are known (RI) as the Ocean State and have a whole Jersey Shore thing going here- with the accents, hair gel, whatever.This was done on a sheet of Pastell Deluxe Ultramarine which I got from New York central Art. Best place do get paper on the planet.The background blue is the most intense blue I could find that was toward the violet spectrum. It was #520 from the Mount Vision pastel Company. Gorgeous.I use primarily Great American Pastels, Unisons, Schminkes, Mt Visions and Senneliers. The Great Americans are my favorite for skin tones.http://www.nycentralartsupply.com/europe/france3.html
