Cameron in Australia by silentsketcher Cameron in Australia by silentsketcher
Commissioned by Janelle, a friend from high school, this pastel piece depicts another acquaintance of mine, Cameron, during his trip down to Australia. The circumstances of this commission were a little saddening, but made as a belated Christmas present, so it was bittersweet. Plus, it has been a while since I last worked in pastels, so it was good to get my hands dirty again.

Apologies for the grainy quality of the digital photograph. This really doesn't do the actual piece justice.

Once again, you show quality in your commissions. You have a steadiness in your hand, showing much detail into the city in the background. The very power coming from the subject. Excellent work.

Thank you! Honestly, it can be a pain to get all those little details, but the end result is always worth it. :nod:

Yup! Did you use velum for sketching the city before you did the completed piece?

The buildings were rather vague in the photograph, so I went right into them after I put down some initial colors. Normally I would prefer sketching things out first, but it didn't seem to make a lot of sense, given the situation.
