We haven’t had our models pose nude much over the winter, as it is colder in the room. Spring is here! Wished I would have used the dark brown pastel instead of the black. I didn’t look closely at what I was picking up. 10″x 18″ pastel on paper
I have been creating larger life drawings, I’ve always preferred larger scale. This is 18″x24″ on Tan Strathmore paper with oil pastel. I like to use oil pastel now because it’s not as fragile as soft pastel, and I’m doing them in sketch book form.
This is a study for a mural of heaven, I’m painting for St. Thomas More Parish. The mural will be painted with acrylics 8.5’x 24.5′. The study is 8.5″x 24″. I will be posting more images as it progresses. I’m considering recording a time lapse of the mural being painted.
