Pastel sketch of Tom

This is my second week painting Tom and as I wasn't able to choose a position whereby I could do a profile or three-quarters view, I decided to change medium, so this is my pastel version. The one thing Tom does move is his eyes, so to help ring the changes from the last sitting, I tried to catch him looking to the side. Tom does have a very florid complexion so it is always a challenge to keep the effect of the light working within the correct values whilst still showing his high colour.
