Portrait number five #30days30portraits

Firstly apologies if anyone is following these blogs today - that all five are being put up in the one day. I only decided to start blogging about the project this evening! Chris sent in this picture of his husband drew. It was part of a much larger composition where Drew was peaking out from vine leaves in a vineyard in Dubrovnik. I was delighted that they both have been on my scope while I was drawing this one. I really feel as if I am starting to improve using the pastels and nearly want to redo the first few!!! However I won't - not now anyway or I will never do one a day.

I should say that I purposely left the vine leaves as just a suggestion of what they are. I like the fact that they are obscure and when you look at the composition first you don't know if they are muppet like hair or a mad hairpiece or whatever :)
