Elderly Southwest Indian Woman

12" x 9" Pastel on Paper
Here's another portrait sketch from the weekly sessions. In keeping with the Southwest theme of the last couple of posts, this sketch is of an older Southwest Indian woman. This portrait was done in pastel on textured gray paper made specifically for pastels. The edge lighting in this portrait was especially fun to do and the dark tone of the paper helped achieve that effect.
