2 Minute Pose
As is typical, this is probably one of my favorite pictures I've done in a while and it is something I knocked out in--literally--a couple minutes. Meanwhile, I have pictures I have worked on for the better part of the hour and not been happy with the results in the least. In fact, about 50% of the time, I usually like the 5-10 minute pictures better than the longer longer poses. Oh, well...
Also, as I mentioned in previous posts, for some reason the pastel on black paper never seems to photograph quite right. In real life, it has a sort of "Velvet Elvis" effect, where the color seems to "pop" off the page in a sort of neon color way.
This was done with red chalk pastel on 8-1/2" x 11" black cardstock.
