Study for Adoration female portrait with pastels

approx. 6 x 8 inches pastel with panpastel on Canson paper
This pose is pretty common in traditional art, the female face looking downwards is depicted in many religious type of works throughout history, I wanted to do my own take on it and push the color a little bit with a more emphasized strokes of pastel, if you look at art history many works were interpretations of previous artworks, what makes something unique is the individual's input, his subjective angle on things, the theme can be anything, how successful the work will be really depends on the artist's involvement.
