 Someday I hope to get out and paint on site but for now my brother has been taking some incredible photos to work from. I may touch this up but I like where it's at.

Job done - that's a really good portrait.

I made an underpainting with inktense and water on watercolor paper and applied pastel primer, then used my new set of Rembrandt Portrait Pastels (#30) sticks, Unison Caucasian set (#8) sticks and some hard pastels. I see the pipe needed to be more to the left now that I posted it! Im not going to fuss with dark pastel marks, I think it would be too messy.

Go for it! I found my second efforts when doing the pastel course showed improvement and I believe you might find your second painting looks better to you also. This is a nice painting on it's own though. :)

Thanks for having a look Alan! I see the problem with this poor mans ear here, too large and too high. Still better than the soft pretzels I was plunking on before!

Keep it up - my ears inevitably end up as some blob on the side of the head unless I take real care - but be very very very precise with the ear's position.

Not as easy as graphite! I used watercolor paper with a rolled on pastel primer. The tooth was rough and it took a lot of pastel to get it to cover! Had to crop too. The borders were not vey good and he wasn't centered. I keep learning.
