Sketchbook, oil and soft pastels

Having spent a day practising making marks with pastels, I felt the time was right to do some sketching before moving on. The first sketch was underpainted with soft pastels, and details defined with oil pastels. The second sketch was with oil pastels alone and I took a less direct approach, concerning myself with the feeling of the image rather than how much it looks like the original.

    I’m afraid I don’t know the name. The image was from guardian weekend magazine if that’s any help?!
