Portrait of someone special to me

Commissioned portrait of beloved Archana madam. 

Pastel pencil on 8×10 inch pastel mat. 

Total time taken is 10days. From sketch to finish the painting is done in 8 cumulative hours but as I am fully occupied in organizing the Holiday Art Market event, it took me 10 days just to manage 8 hrs. 

The portrait is done from a reference photo taken from a photo print that was taken almost 30 years ago.

I tried my level best to restore some skin tone, details in my work and finally her bright smile after seeing the portrait gave me satisfaction.
