Nude in Pastel WIP
This was done on watercolour paper.
there are 3 photos in all.
The figure was drawn in and gold coloured watercolour was placed on top.
The figure was filled in with Mount Vision pastels.
The background was filled in with watercolour. It could just have easily been a pastel background. I would have chosen violet with black on top. The very dark background makes the figure stand out. It is a technique used by artists frequently.
This figure was not drawn from a live model. but from a photo. It was my first attempt at a full figure. I usually do from the neck up. It was difficult to draw the figure in. I put the photo on a grid and the figure was also placed on a grid.
