Pastels are like dry chalk. My pastel portrait paintings look slightly different from my oils in that their backgrounds are sometimes left unfinished. Also, the surface has a chalkier texture, but it allows for the smoothest blending. I work from my art studio in Raleigh, North Carolina.
Pastel portrait paintings prices of people range from (5 x 7) $210 to (30 x 40) $2240. Additional subjects are 50%.
