Pasteldrawing of Amy Lee (singer of Evanescence). Sorry for the shadow of my camera on the left edge.. and in real the colors do look better.

- Rembrandt/Schmincke pastels
- Faber Castell pastel pencils
- Sennelier Pastel Card 50x65cm
- 14-16 hours
- reference photo

Wow, thank you :) Well, sorry, but I can't really explain it.. I put a grid over the reference photo on the computer, draw a similar grid on my pastel paper, and then I pass the picture case by case with pencil. Thats the sketch, and then I begin to color it layer by layer with pastel chalks, then I add details with pastel pencils :) The grid technique is maybe the secret, otherwise it could (yet) not be that accurate :D

That expression gives me chills. She's a gorgeous woman but you've taken her allure to a whole new level. Some people tell me that I make my portraits prettier than they are in person because I see beauty more intensely than others...I think you've done exactly that.
