Seal

Portrait of the singer 'Seal', soft pastels on black velour.


Last night I started 2 pictures and both came to nothing which was a bit dis-heartening but I'm pretty pleased with this one I did this evening.

  1. I like this one very much! especially how the figure emerges from the dark background, very dramatic.

  2. Thank you, looking back at this I'm very pleased with it, probably the best portrait I've done yet.

  3. Hi Benco,
    I have just recently tried pastels again. Nothing like yours though!

    Thanks for stopping by my little blog. It must be a great place where you live.

  4. Hi Downstairscreator,

    Pastels are great fun aren't they. Falklands are are great place, middle of the winter now though so not at their best at the mo.
