Figure Drawing, August 10, 2015

Tonight felt like a bit of a breakthrough for me. I’ve just started using the sienna toned paper. But which color to use to draw the figure? And then what pastels to use for the highlights? It needs to become intuitive – as it did in this spotlighted one.

Three fifteen minute studies. One above and two below. Conte pencil tightened with conté crayon on toned pastel paper.  32.5 x 50 cm or 13 x 19 3/4 in.

Three four minute studies. Charcoal on toned sketching paper. 35 x 50 cm. or 13 3/4 x 19 3/4 in.
