Anjali — Final Update

I found out that, after I have sprayed a pastel drawing, I can do some touch ups over it.  Pastels, at least with my pastels on the paper that I use, eventually get so many layers that it starts lifting up when I try to apply more layers.  It gets messy and very frustrating.  Well, I was so upset over the mess that I thought I would just give it a try and it worked.  I think it is much better, now.  Not perfect, but enough so that I can sleep, tonight.  LOL!  I know…  I have issues…

Please comment and let me know what you think.  Does she look better or should I have left well enough alone?  Also, the photo in the post, below, was scanned and it didn’t turn out well.  I took this photo with my camera.  I think it is a much better photo.

  1. Hey Sweet Girl.
    I love both versions but you are right. The final touches made a huge difference. I like it better.
    Love you.

  2. Hello Ginny!
    Your portrait is incredible! Yes final touches did improve it!
    I love how you captured her thoughtful look.

  3. Both are absolutely lovely. But in the second one her features are well defined, and her skin glows! Good job! Hope you sleep well tonight! 😘
