Pastel Journal Gallery | Pastel Portraits by Z.L. Feng

What first attracted artist and Radford University art professor Z.L. Feng to pastel portraits was observing how a distinguishing characteristic—bone structure or striking eyes, for example—can tell so much about a person’s story and reveal personality. Enjoy this gallery of portrait sketches by the artist, and read about his approach to capturing a likeness in his pastel paintings in the February 2013 issue of Pastel Journal.
