cubistic nude pastel drawing

Roundism – 29-11-17

Based on a earlier roundism graphite pencil drawing I made this pastel adding the realm of colours.  I wanted the woman appear in a kind of midsummernight’s dream with lots of yellow and blues, girded with some purples and pinks. I liked what Pastelmat by Clairefontaine could offer me. It did live up to my expectations but it eats up a lot of my pastels so I had to buy new ones today. Luckily it stays in the drawing rather than falling off (which happens to other pastel papers a lot).


The built-up of the pastel is here.
