Some of my Latest Commissions

Here are a few commissioned portraits I have lately completed.

   You may have noticed I use watercolour paper allot for pastels. That is only because I only have watercolour and drawing paper. But recently I've been experimenting with that sandpapered texture pastel paper which is really fun to work on but I don't think it is really necessary for a good pastel painting. As the saying goes, 'a good workman never blames his tools', and I don't want to learn to be reliant on tools and materials but concentrate on improving my skills and being able to use anything. When I am a good enough artist to need better equipment to achieve the very best then I will use them. But right now I'm still in training!
