Black and White pastel baby

This is a pastel painting of something I found on the internet, from a website called pictures online,..."9freepictures.com"
What I'm trying to say is I'm pretty sure Im ok with painting the photo.

Anyway I'm pretty happy with this and it looks better in real life , took this photo under electric lighting.
Il maybe replace it with a better photo tomorrow, taken in daylight.
Will be getting it framed and hopefully sold on.

Steve Hearns Sketch Club

I was the only entrant this week on Steve's sketch club challenge, a luggage strap.
I did this on a graphics tablet which I'm stilll getting to grips with.

Nefertiti framed

Well I never heard back from the photographer that I painted this from ,(George DELOACHE) so I'm assuming he has no objections. (see earlier post)
This is it framed, very happy with this.
Click for a closer look.

George DeLoache won the coveted Eastman Kodak 2010 photography award for a stunning photo ,of  which this is my Pastel Drawing.

I have emailed George and awaiting a reply, so unless he asks me to take this off its staying here.

Henry Cooper

A young Henry Cooper who passed away today.
This is not how I remember the great boxer, just a little too young to have remembered him like this, I was more of the Brut aftershave generation.
Which may explain the lack of a likeness, ha

Steve Hearns Sketchclub

This is just a plain drawing !

Henry Cooper

Did this really quick, started off as a serious pastel study but quickly degenerated into this 20 min caricature type.

Commision

Did this for a lad at work who's son is a Liverpool supporter.
Don't know if I should ink out his face too ?
