Windy Day (Girl on Beach) - 8 x 10" Pastel

After two days of doing a frustrating stilllife of my own design, I broke down and went to the Wet Canvas Reference Image Library for inspiration. I chose a black and white photo, so that made for a bit of a challenge. I was a little disappointed with the outcome of the face and the stiffness (or maybe the proportions) of the figure; after working on it for quite a while, I was ready for something else, so I painted my son's sneakers instead (see above).
