Its Week 16 in my online class #LetsfaceIt. We are working with all types of Pastels ( chalks infused with color)- sticks, pastel pencils and pan pastel. Its a very messy medium but the results of hours of layering colors and tones is a luminous painting where lights and shadows gently stand out. I named her Woya which is the Cherokee word for dove. I was inspired by a photo of a Native American woman with her face delicately painted .
