Portrait from life of a model named Walter

I have been painting people of color for fifty years. We are all people with skin of many colors. I have painted people whose ancestors have come from Europe,Africa,Asia, the Middle East and Native Americans. When I paint a portrait I am painting shapes and colors. This is a pastel painting I  created in a painting class attended by professional illustrators in the early 1990’s. It took about an hour.

Below are swatches of colors taken from the face area of the portrait of walter.
