pastel portrait project

This assignment was to use oil pastels to draw a portrait of someone using a single color in every square. My artwork shows that I successfully demonstrated the project criteria because I was able to blend the colors very well and end up with a final project that I really like. I think what I did best was matching the colors so that they were very close to the photograph. I struggled with not drawing out the facial features because I wanted it to look as realistic as possible. If I started over I would choose a new image and just do one color per square.
