I'm up to painting 8 .... and well to the honest this is a pastel sketch not a painting.... but i am working on it like a painting.... sudeenly pastels are making sense to me amd I'm enjoying bringing out the tones (in much the same way as i build up watercolour washes.... but using a midtone colured paper I can move to darks (the shadows) and lights at the same time.... and pastels are pure colour

I started this a couple of days ago and have just added a few more "highlights".... it is so big it wont fit on my scanner so the full image here is a photo and you can see it larger on flickr (just click on it)... the images below are highlights that could be scanned at once.
