Life Drawings August 18 2021

This week I returned to using my trusty NuPastels and Chunky Charcoals. There were even a few strokes done with Conté Crayons on a couple of the drawings. It was good to use pencils and ballpoint pens recently to practice my line drawing but I really missed working with color.

With the resurgence of Covid via the Delta variant, our model wore a mask at this week’s session. I avoided drawing the mask by either not including the head or imagining her face as I remembered it from past sessions. In a couple of poses, her back was turned to me which eliminated the mask dilemma.
