The human figure has not looked so wondrous to me in a while. I love pastels, but I haven't been able to draw anything like Kristina Laurendi Havens. Her pastel, charcoal, oil, and watercolor works are splendidly bright, with an acute attention to detail that has truly captivated me. To see her works, like the one below, you may find her shop on Etsy.com by clicking here.
This has truly inspired me to start painting again myself.
