Life Drawings July 14 2021

Over the last two weeks, since our life drawing group re-started, I have been drawing with pastels. It’s my favorite medium for figure drawing. For variety I worked this week with ballpoint pen. In addition, I tried adding color using wax pastels (like oil pastels) but their waxiness really didn’t work with the line drawing of the pen. Still, it was an interesting experiment and allowed me to try something different.
