Pastel Figure

Bought some pastel papers and a couple of new conte pencils. I realize now that I am out a few shades for skin tones and having the same problem with blonde hair.
Used a figure from a catalogue and decided to omit the dress. However I then decided I should put a skimpy nightgown on the poor thing. As well some of the proportions are out but for not drawing much in the last 20 years I don't think its too bad.


  1. I like it. Proportions are fine - I would think it is hard to get someone looking over their shoulder like that just right.
    Like the new blog!

  2. Thanks! I meant the proportions in comparison to the exact lines of the model, esp the head--was told yrs ago by an art teacher at Usask that I should do still life for practice---not for me!
