This is a small 9"x12" pastel on Art Spectrum's Colourfix sanded surface. I did this at the Coppini Academy where I teach a pastel class on Tuesdays. It was right after New Year's and only one student knew we had class that day, so I had lots of time to work on this. It was the first time I'd worked from a mirror in ages, and I enjoyed it.

I'm still working on the landscape painting for the Austin Pastel Society's deadline of Friday. Will try to post another progress image later today.
I bought a new kind of canvas for the oil portrait I'm beginning this weekend. It's made for watercolor on canvas, but the only difference is that it's a very finer weave cotton, which should result in a nicer portrait.
I love it when you leave me comments. Please do!
