Portrait number 4 #30days30portraits

Portrait number four is a lovely lady called Deborah. I really enjoyed drawing this - not only because she has a really interesting face to draw but because for the first time in this project I feel like I am getting somewhere with these pastels.  I took a bit of artistic licence with the colours here. Deborah does not have bright red hair and purple lips - but I love colour - what can I say lol! Choice of music for the broadcast was Amy Winehouse - I think maybe she influenced me a little :) I was delighted that despite me going nuts with the colours, Deborah recognised herself and loves the colours. Phew!  Incidentially apologies about the picture quality on these four last blogs. I am taking them at night and just using the camera on the iPad for speed.   At the end of the project I will post on my website better quality images.
