Lifedrawing class: Pastel portrait



Pin It
Yesterday was a fun night at lifedrawing class, the 'theme' of the night was to draw a portrait using pastels on a black gesso ground. Black is on one extreme of the value scale which really forces you to look at the tones in the face, where is the lightest light, where is the darkest dark and slowly and deliberately map them out on the paper. Good exercise..

"Carel", pastel on gessoed paper, 37x25cm

Dank je Brigitte! Leuk experiment.
Komende modelles wordt weer een portret als ik het goed heb, ga dan misschien weer eens olieverf proberen.
