Pastel Portrait

I am not very experienced with pastels or portraits so went to a 3 hour class recently with a photo I took of this old woman when I was in the islands east of Lombok, Indonesia.  I really enjoyed working in pastels and finished this last week.  I think she has a lovely expression on her face.

this is beautiful, youve captured the expression very well. Is this the first portrait you have done?

It's the second - I did an old Greek man last year. I think this one is better.
