"Why?", Pastel, 12" x 12" finally finished

I think I can officially call this one finished.  I've been painting it since the end of November, my brain cells have been consumed with this for 3 1/2 months.  I'm not going to know what to think about now, lol........

This went through quite the rigors of the painting process.  The hair on the right got erased and repainted at least once, the hand and arm got erased and repainted once, and the hair on the left got the same treatment.  Suffice to say Wallis stood the test of abuse, which is why I love this paper.

Absolutely fabulous. I like the textures, wrinkles, cloth and all. :)

Thank you Jo. Funnily enough, I had to have my daughter pose with her arm up to get the wrinkles on the sleeve. That arm was blocked in my reference photo. Luckily, it worked out :)
