Sophia Loren in Pastels

This woman is quite beautiful. I made use of the tone of the paper to achieve her skin tones, so it is less layered than some of my other pastel commissions I have done. I enjoyed making use of the complimentary orange and blue pairings. Hints of green, pink and purple provide the discord colours and the earthy tones of her hair and shadows provide the overall balance.
