This 18 x 24 pastel painting was done using the original photograph and two studies done earlier in both pastel and oil. This is very useful in several ways. First, one gets to know the subject inside and out, and has a chance to work out potential problems with composition, color and other elements before committing much time and material to the larger work. Also, those who want to buy an original piece of art but prefer to spend less money, can do so with the smaller studies, which still stand alone as works of art despite being labeled, "studies".
