Portrait of a young woman

Soft pastel on 9x12 brown paper. A first try on a Sennelier soft pastel, and I'm amazed on the brilliance of the pigments. It wasn't a breeze ride since soft pastels sticks are basically blunt and too soft, it's hard to be pointy acurate on application. If it were a pastel pencil it would be a different story.
