Portrait 1 - Oil Pastel on Drawing Paper

My first time completing a portrait. Normally I get frustrated and crumple it. This time the goal was to complete it no matter how it turned out. Glad I did. Good starting point.

Oh - and I used mostly Artist Loft and Cray Pas Junior Artist oil pastels. I also used my new set of 24 Faber Castel oil pastels. Found I needed more than the 24 colors and kept digging into the student quality pastels. Once I finished - I realized that I totally ignored the set of 50 Cray-Pas Expressionist (brand new) sitting beside me in the closed box the entire time!
