The imp

Pastel on Tiziano pearl, 165x240mm (6.5x9.4 in.)

I like to do the human face, as it has so many wonderful planes and relationships and shapes and expressions. Today I decided to do a portrait of my oldest granddaughter to learn more about shaping faces, and because she has such a sweet, lively face. And because she is my granddaughter. What more fun could there be?

Unfortunately, I couldn't have her pose for me, as she lives almost 3000 miles away. This is from a photo of her when she was about 4.
