impressionist nude pastel drawing

Model session – 31-12-19

Last day of the year and completed a work in progress I started during a live session with my regular model. With just two simple LED reading lamps I got the atmosphere right. Lots of clairobscurity and having Seurat in mind my goal was to produce a drawing that shows soft tonal gratiations, distorting the shape of her body, cushions and bed. It was great to do this one in pastel pencils again.
