Karin Jurick

Here I am presenting the portrait of the artist Karin Jurick as the first portrait I have done in pastel. I used conté crayons pastel pencils to do this. And my inexperience with the medium shows. I don’t know how else I can improve from this. I did this portrait as a part of  “Thankyou Karin Project” hosted by Jill Polsby. You can see all the 118 portraits that artists have submitted for the project through the Picasa album link  in the Jill’s post. Mine is image number 89.

First Pastel Portrait

with 5 comments

I did my first pastel portrait! I really like to share it with all of you but unfortunately I cannot put up image of the painting until mid-February at the earliest 😦 . I did the portrait using Conté pastel pencils. Since I am a complete newbie, this is more like a study. I am still learning so the portrait is more painterly than realistic. I did not strive for the exact likeness too. Now moving on with the next painting.
