Absolutely thrilled with this piece. It's a 3 part lesson on my YouTube Channel here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4YOxSOPnKBY

Completed using Faber-Castell Pitt Pastel Pencils on Ingres Pastel Paper.

Beautiful work Colin of a beautiful woman.  I wonder what really happened to her and were the Kennedy's involved

Fabulous pencil work, Colin. well done!

Stunning work!  I love working with pastels & I have a set of those same pencils--but I have trouble sharpening them (they usually break in every sharpener I've tried).  Any suggestions for a good sharpener?

Hi Jayne, I haven't found a sharpener that I like that doesn't break after a few uses. I prefer to use a razor blade (see video here of how I do it: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GOeHUUG4xTk)
