expressionistic nude pastel drawing

Model session – 14-02-19

Last session with my model I wanted to have her pose a little bit more risqué but counterbalance it by keeping the hatched strokes rather rough than to finepolish them into tonal matching strokes that would approach realism too much. The colours though are very strong but through divisional colour illusion I got the greyish effect I wanted. Therefor I cannot make my mind up whether this one is impressionistic or expressionistic. A little bit of both I think.
