pastel colors 2 for you know who . . .

Did the previous pastel scare you?  Don't feel bad - it scared me a little too!  This is another practice pastel on heavy cardboard - warming up for 'a summer of color fun'.  Once again I just drew it and without fussing over any details just painted it!  She looks like me - if I were 50 - okay - 100 pounds lighter and had long flowing hair!  (Okay - maybe the eyes!)

Hi Myra, I was wondering if you are familiar with Sharon Knettell. She does beautiful works of ballet dancers, many of them in pastel. I think you would enjoy her site and learn a lot just from observing her lovely paintings. Congratulations on all the progress you have been making with your drawings!

Love this Myra! And the one in your other pastel post too! Nice bright colors! I have never tried pastel. You have inspired me! Love your ballerinas! :)

Fabulous colors, Myra. When I paint pastel, I don't like fusing over shapes, as usually painters do it. Yes, If it were not for the hair it looks like you.

She is beautiful, Myra. I'm sure you are too.
