So this one is taking longer than I anticipated as pastel objects are often difficult to render due to the need for color but not too much - keeping a very light hand takes time and Faber Castel does not have a lot of really pastel colors like Prismas Greyed Lavender which I'm having to use a lot for the petals.  Having said that I figure a few more days of steady progress and I should be done.

i like the detail work on the flower and the back drop

holy cow! i thought that was your reference at first! gorgeous! :o)

Thanks Michael.  Took a peek at your pieces as well - stunning.  I especially like the one of the Indian woman.

Looks beautiful Terry!

That's it - I'm done.  I looked at it and I see that I could just keep going but the trick someone once said is to know when to say you're done - so I'm done!  The final photography of it won't happen till next week but this is from my camera - perhaps a bit blurry but you get the idea.


It's really good. Well done.
