I've been working in pastels recently. This one is on red paper. My natural tendency to draw details is offset by the thickness of the pastels: I simply can't put in all the fine lines I'm used to, so I have to wing it more. It's a less cerebral and meticulous process this way, more emotional. I'm happy with the results. These are fun to do. Many thanks to my lovely wife for modeling for me! Original size: 18x24 inches/45.7x61cm

The visual texture of the mist and lightning is just amazing, though I would like to see more detail in her hair. Beautiful!

Impressive. The sword is beautiful, and the woman is incredibly lif-like.

The person whom my comment is under is a really stupid twit. I bet it’s just jealous.
On a happier note...
