WIP-The Gold Bangle_01.18Have been working on a new pastel painting to be titled “The Gold Bangle”. Here I am building up the flesh tones to start modeling the hands. The finished pastel portrait image should be 16 x 20.

The model is Katrina Sherwood, who is also a muse for Cuong Nguyen. I had the pleasure of painting her at a workshop at Cuong’s studio. She modeled for several reference shots for me, so I have several future works in mind.
