Painting days are always rewarding.  Today I spent the day working on the head.  The morning was working with my Asaro head.  It is a plastic head that shows all the planes. It makes it easier to see how the light is carried over the surface of the skull.  
In the afternoon I had a model who is my dear friend Mary's grandson, Peter.  He was a good sport and sat for a few hours.  I got out my pastels and started working.  I was happy to capture him.
