A REGAL LOOK*10" round pastel on wood panel*detail of image
And this is the second piece I worked on for two hours at life drawing yesterday.
Only about halfway done, but you can see my layering to build up the image.
The first layer is created with a pastel wash to build up a mid-tone.Then the top sequential layers are pastel strokes, alternating between blunt to broad strokes.
Really liking the wood as a substrate. .. fun, fun, fun!
