Soft pastels on pastel paper, a portrait for a gift.

Took a long time to get the skin right.

Love it!!
by: Nathaniel

Skin tones are amazing and you've captured the expression in her gleaming eyes so well in such concentration towards the looker. Wonderful!!

Thank you so much for your comment.

I would love to do a step by step tutorial, but I haven't painted for over a year now and have joined this site hoping to regain some confidence. I painted this portrait and one of her brother a couple of years ago for a gift.
My hubby is buying me a set of portrait pastel for Christmas in the hope I may start again. I have posted another painting and added a tip in the pastel forum.

Kind regards
Geraldine
PS I would love to know of any artists here who live near London

Lovely!!
by: Balaji

This is a lovely drawing of a very atractive child. I like the way you have done the eyes, her smile and the lighting on the face to bring out the contours.

The eyes have it!

I love this. I have never tried pastels. I might have a go now.
You have really created a lovely portrait. The eyes are beautiful. In fact, Maisie is amazing.
Well done Geraldine!
