Life drawings from October 17

I was back to using pastels for the life drawings this week. As usual, I started out with Cretacolor’s Chunky Charcoals. On the longer poses, I’ve added more brilliant colors with several blues, reds and greens from Prismacolor NuPastels.

    1. Wow! What can I say – you’ve made my day, week and month! Thanks so much, Shari. I really do like using the pastels and particularly being able to lay down areas of tone using the side of the stick. Then I can work in the form gradually adding line work and (hopefully) values and color. Whether your high praise is justified or not, it is deeply appreciated. Thank you.
