A head and shoulders portrait in pastel of a four year old boy

Pastel on paper 15 x 12 in 38.1 x 30.48 cm

This is a commissioned  pastel portrait of Oliver, who at the time was four years of age. I find pastel portraits of children particularly demanding for there are no characteristic features to latch onto and children are smooth and wrinkle free.
However, it males for a pleasant change from oil painting.
