Still Standing, “S” in Pastel
This morning was the second week “S” posed for the Independent Painters Group. He was in the same pose, of course, so the group had a second week to finish the paintings they had started.
My last weeks painting was in watercolor. Today I moved to a slightly different vantage point in the studio and did the above piece in soft pastels.
19”x 24” pastel on sanded Bristol paper.
I had time at the end of the session to do another sketch. Instead of drawing in the stool he was leaning on, and the blank wall behind, I started drawing in and environment and maybe a character to share the page with him.
9”x 12” ballpoint pen on toned grey paper
