From a picture taken by her father, I painted this pastel portrait of my grandaughter Natalie last year. Grandma's Joy is 10"x8" pastel (25x20cm) on swede board. I started with hard pastel sticks, then continued with the softer Rembrandt, finishing with the extra soft Schmincke pastels.
Natalie is a smart girl. She loves to read, paint, and play games she invents.
