Process of a Pastel portrait, Big size portrait

Hello again!!
I wanted to come back with a very special portrait..And having something good to show. To paint this portrait was very intense and emotional for me and it came to me very quickly. Giving freedom to my emotions expressed through the colors and strokes. This is a portrait of a young gifted craft-man who passed away recently…The portrait was commissioned by his mother…
For this work I have used mostly Unison Soft Pastels on dark grey Canson paper, the biggest size available, 29 x 43 inches. Big sizes allows me to be more expressive, something I felt necessary in this case.
