I was out of town one Monday, and the model didn't show up the next Monday:mad: Felt good to get back at it today. This is pastel on charcoal drawing paper, about 14" x 18"...

I like your work Ruth! What length of time did your model pose for this? Did you finish it there or take it home and finish it later?

Thank you Wyo and kj..

The models for our class sit for 20 minutes and then take a break, then another 20 minutes, and so on. Class goes from 1 to 4:00. We don't have a teacher, as such, it's just a group that gets together to share the cost of a model. We learn a lot from each other, though. :D

Ahhh. OK. That's like we do for the sculpture workshops. The longest pose I've ever had in my figure drawing classes is 30 minutes. Then they move to a different pose. I am really longing for some longer sessions, even with breaks. That would be great. I really like your portrait though. It is beautiful!

It's always a treat to look at your paintings. I love the way you bring light into your work.
It's kind of like magic!

Thanks, y'all :D

Stealth, I love your tinyhead. To answer your questions... I use some el-cheapo pastels I got from a local art supply store, don't remember what brand they are, and some from WC's own Terry Ludwig, which are really nice. I use the side of the pastel to lay in big shapes, and I do some blending with the end of the pastel, and a little bit of hatching, hardly ever do cross-hatching. One of these days I'm going to remember to take my camera along and take some progress pics.:o
