Degas style

My daughter in Pastel , 8x10 . copyrighted 2010, Nita Leger Casey
This past month I have gone twice to the Degas show at the Boston Museum of Fine arts, Yesterday my friends and I went again before the show closes. Degas painted in Pastels a lot and always painted his woman's from the back , so I challenged my artist friends to do a painting Degas style, I did one first to start the challenge ,this was done  from a photo of the back of the head of my daughter, I used pastels and many of his color palette, this is the result !
Challenge yourself, it's always fun !
