Out of the shadows - Pastel on paper

Self-portrait, pastel on paper 10″ square

A self portrait painted in pastel because there was some fabulous lighting from a very narrow window at a holiday cottage where we were staying during the summer.
I loved the chiaroscuro effect it gave, and it suited me to portray myself in this way, emerging from the shadows as I gained confidence in painting after a long break.
