Dora Maar portrait

Pastel, Picasso inspired.
Portrait by  a nine year old.
The motivation was a study of one of Picasso"s paintings of Dora Maar. The children practiced front and side profiles many times, addressing the positioning of features. Their art work combined two profiles in the one portrait. The colouring required very little of my support. They seemed to  colour instinctively. I did suggest they touch at least two sides of the page with their portrait in order to keep the image large.
