Pastel portrait of child

Zeke-16 x 20 pastel portrait

Meet Zeke! This adorable little guy was a lot of fun to do in pastel. This was done from a small photo of Zeke taken by a family friend. I love pudgy little baby hands, so it was fun making his hands look fleshy and cute. The hat has a subtle weave texture. The cell phone he is holding presses against those adorable chubby cheeks. It was a challenge to create all of these textures in a realistic way, but I think I accomplished it.
