They are the most adorable little darlings around!
I jump on any opportunity to practice pastel portraits when I see a photo like the one I'm sharing in today's post.
Another great find from Paint My Photo.... that's right, I've mentioned this site many times before. It is a great resource of reference photos that you can use in your next painting. I like them especially when I am stuck in 'I-don't-know-what-to-paint' mode.

The photos below are taken in my studio with my iPhone. The colour is not exact... but hopefully you get a feel for the process that I use to create skin.
