This is Stephanie, my beautiful daughter in law, in Hawaii during her wedding ceremony.
I had a wonderful learning experience with my new pastel portrait artist, Susan Carlin, at her new gallery/studio in La Villita. With her looking over my shoulder and giving guidance, I am happy with the way this turned out. Stephanie is really prettier than this, but I'm afraid to mess with it too much! I feel much more confident with pets, animals, and fur instead of skin tones. But I'm working on it!
This is very exciting learning new things and gaining confidence!
