'Lupa' portrait

‘Lupa’ portrait

Portrait of Lupa marks one of my very earliest portrait attempts. Probably you can see yourself that it is rougher and simpler than other, later works of the same type seen here. I was new to pastel on paper and hadn’t yet taken Robert Schick’s class in portraiture (being offered this fall) at Community School of Music and Art.

Such a beautiful woman deserves better, and I hope I get to do her portrait again soon!
