Garden Muse..Pastel Portrait on Velour Paper..Texas Artist..Rae Andrews
This portrait was fun to begin with, then I think I lost the likeness.. then it came back..Ya da! Ya da! Ya da!
It's amazing what a small light stroke or touch up can do in painting a portrait, it can change the whole face! And it did, several time as I said!
The trouble is, this is my husband Thomas, and when one knows the subject so well, I believe it makes it harder for the portrait artist.
It certainly does with me. I might work more on this in a day or two, I can see many things which need tweaking.
By the way, my husband likes it!
This is a pastel on velour paper $13.5" x 19"
