The last pose of the night, 30 minutes. The palette was very cold until the last minutes when some brick red conté pastel was added.
This work is rather large. Made while sitting on the floor in front of the model. Conté and oil pastels. you can see the sweeping movements of my arm and the distortion of having the paper underneath me.
Five short poses on two large sheets of paper. These were made using differing techniques; drawing form the feet upwards, concentrating on one part of the body at a time then moving on, painting the negative space, painting the whole figure shape quickly and using only looping movements to create form.
