expressionistic nude pastel drawing

Reclining nude – 10-11-14

I was hovering over my regular model and was charmed by this unusual angle. Perhaps you can forgive me when I tell you that I made the pastel from a picture I took that session because otherwise I had to keep my head upside down the whole time. I kept it clairobscur without abstraction because the colours are the theme I think rather than the forms. It’s in China on display right now.
