A rainbow of greys

Amazing detail, what patience you have, simply beautiful

Thank you Heather - I'm so pleased with this little portrait as it is of my very good friend and fellow pastelist in the US!

A terrific drawing, Michele. Everything beautifully drawn, especially the hair. On a personal note, it has the added bonus of being in monochrome. I love that, I don't know why, but it always seems more 'real' to me...when, in fact, it's the opposite of 'real'.

Another stunning portrait, running out of superlatives to describe them. The hair, the detail on the cardigan, the zip...tremendous.

Thank you Tony - I love a mono - getting back to basics with just two or three pastels!

Thank you so much Lewis - my last comment was in fact meant for you sorry!!

Beautiful portrait Michele, I do find your work very inspiring.

Thank you Russell what a lovely thing to say!!

Many thanks Sarah!

Absolutely brilliant, a stunning portrait that’s drawn so beautifully, I’m amazed at the detailing etc . One of the best pastel portraits I have seen in a very long time.

Wow Dixie! Thank you so much what a wonderful comment to read!

Lovely Michele. Love the details that you always nail in your paintings. Things like the pattern on her top, the zip and the shadow of the zip and of course her hair.

Thank you so much Christine for looking so closely!!

Incredible!! So Detailed. In pastel so amazing!

Wonderful and striking artwork.

Another beauty Michele in every way!

This is really good, Michele!
