pastel painting of a woman's face

No. 26, 30 Friends in 30 Days

Sha

This is Sha, the sister of a friend of my husband’s. I tried to see the resemblance between her and her brother the whole time I was painting this portrait, but in the end I had to admit that maybe I didn’t remember Joe as well as I thought I did.

This happens with increasing frequency, but I try to relax and enjoy the process anyway. That’s all I can do and it’s usually more than enough.

Thanks, Sha, for sending me your beautiful face to paint!

Here are the progress pics.

This is my 30 Friends in 30 Days series. Each day I take a friend’s selfie and make a pastel painting from it. Then I post it to ebay at auction for 7 days. Follow my progress as I learn to paint pastel portraits with a little help from my friends.
