Self Portrait with hands

Art by Rita Foster
I got the idea of using red and white pastel on a cool colored toned paper when I was looking at one of my former instructor's website, Douglas Malone. I loved the affect so much I just had to try it. This is my second attempt at it, myself as the model.

Red & White Pastel on
9 x 12 inch flannel gray mi-teintes paper
