Profile Study

I've been struggling with pastels lately and this one portrait has been a challenge, so for me, it was back to the drawing board so to speak.  I realized that I still need to work on proportions, because if these are off, then the drawing is all wrong.  I came across the Drawing Coach website which has been invaluable in helping me to master proportions.  Having gotten down the proportions and values, I finally feel like I've captured something of a likeness in the profile.   Whew!  Now onto color...
