The Look. Charcoal, pastel and pencils on paper 100 x 72.
So, there was fabric hanging from my easel to the model. I had decided to travel light and just take a range of pencils and a rubber by my side. In the break a fellow artist had said ‘why don’t you try smudging?’ So that’s what I did. The rubber came in handy for blurring the pencil and pastel marks. The skin tones and green colouring were created the next morning before breakfast but after coffee. I like the mysterious artists in the background with just their non working hand visible.
