Life Drawing, Charcoal and pastel
The latest life drawing - it will not photograph well for me - there is a soft cream in the highlights but they are reading too garishly :>(
Done with willow charcoal, compressed charcoal and cream pastel. Again about 90 minutes work,
I wanted to concentrate on the 'portrait' aspect with this one.
Charcoal is such a lovely medium to work with, messy but so adjustable. I can sweep mistakes away with a brush of my hand (yes I do get very grubby) and redraw, draw back in with an eraser to paint lights back in and be really flexible. I edit. A Lot.
We've got the same model, Lucy, very chatty, again next week, with the same pose for those who paint and work slower. So I'll choose another view.
