This woman does seem to glow--not unlike her creator, I'd imagine! I am just starting to play with pastels and though I haven't made anything like this lovely woman...I can see what a joy she must have been to sketch out. Beautiful.

That makes me think of the dove commercials :-) I like how Dove products are using real shaped women to promote things... rather than the bone skinny runway models.

Makes me want to use dove that much more :-)

Good stuff -- smooth curves and great color and shading. I can't do pastels, myself, but admire the medium greatly.

This is gorgeous. I love the fullness of her body. It made me think of my favorite collection of poems entitled "Full Woman, Fleshly Apple, Hot Moon..."
