While visiting my frame shop on Halloween, I snapped a photo of one of the costumed employees and finally got around to painting her pastel portrait. I decided to use my new favorite surface, suede mat board, but this one was a dark gray...much harder (I found out) to make light creamy skin tones on!

This surface is not forgiving and I doubt if I will ever do another portrait on the dark color. 
A learning experience, but fun.  It works really well depicting animal's fur.  

She told me she was a pirate, but I prefer to call this "Gypsy".

Thanks for following my blog!
