"My Grandson Sam" - First & Final Attempts

The sketch above is the one I consider finished. I've been working with pastels for the past two weeks because I could never quite get comfortable with them. For the first time I can say....pastels are truly versatile and really fun!! I posted the two sketches together to compare the differences between monochromatic composition and when a bit of pastel color is added....... For me, the differences are dramatic. What do you think?
Eric and Kirsten; I had as much fun working this out as I did working on Ted's sketch. I hope the final sketch meets with your approval as I enjoyed working on this project very much.
Love all of you..... See you very soon....
