Almost done today.  Still working on the hands and feet.  The pastel is starting to build up too much so I use a stiff artists brush to remove some of the slick areas.

Day 4 = Ongoing pastel portrait.  I've been working all over the portrait and now I need to get some of that background and step done next.

Work in progress of an oil portrait I've been taking my time on.  Getting close to finishing it now. Working dark to light.  Still have most of the highlights to add and background and clothing.  I need to focus on finishing this one.
