Pastels on one layer. Imaginary.

Is that a melon she's holding, or is it her boob? :D Nice work as always Caesar!

Pastels are wonderful, my dear Amanda, and I shall try a more than one layer and smudging one. Thank You.:)

Dear Evart, as in many of the classical paintings concerning Maria Maddalena the sinner who was forgiven by Jesus and followed him (a gospels characters someone, with little evidence, with Maria di Magdala), the melon :p is actually a skull on which she meditated in view of repenting.
Thank You! :)

Dear Skylar-Brown:D, after my explanation to Evart You'll know tha You're absolute right and it's in line with a several century tradition of Maria Maddalena classical representation.;)
Thank You!:)
