Title: Latina
Medium: Soft Chalk Pastels 
Comments: I did this pastel painting for my Art III class.  We were in a portraiture/figure
drawing unit.  I used a photo from a magazine as a reference and added in my own background
and one more rose to her hair and some baby breath.  At the time I was really proud of it.
I think I still am, though now I can see some things I don't like about her eyes and
forehead region... meh, it was one of the pics I submitted as a slide to the Illinois
Institute of Art: Chicago to get accepted and to compete to get a half tuition
scholarship.  I feel so fortunate that I actually got that scholarship ~_ ;  ::wipes tear::
