A pastel portrait drawn from Jack Haskell’s photo of Jazmyn. I prepared a board with acrylic mixed with Golden acrylic ground for pastels. It was challenging to obtain the result I wanted sometimes, because spraying the pastels with a fixative change the appearance of the pastels in ways that I didn’t always anticipate.
