Tag Archives: pastel chalks on Canson pastel paper

Figure Drawing, July 8, 2019

Our model tonight was one of our regulars, Soren. He’s really long and lanky which at times can be challenging just fitting all his body parts onto one page. Often I don’t try. Tonight, at least in the fifteen poses, ones he took ones that were more compressed – but not too compressed – making it possible to see where the gesture lies.

Below four fifteen minute poses. Conté pencil and crayon on Canson pastel paper. 32.5 x 50 cm or 13 x 19.75 in.

And four four minute gesture poses. Black charcoal on tinted sketching paper. 35 x 50 cm or 13.75 x 19.75 in.
