I nearly didnt make it to todays Sunday workshop and I arrived late, very tired, slightly hungover and somewhat unprepared. Its funny how it goes though, it wasnt a bad session at all. I carry quite a bit of stuff with me because I never know what my mood will be and how inspiration will strike and today I decided it was a Pan Pastels day. So no crazy colours, way out proportions or any attempt to be creative and I just went for sensible colours and an earnest attempt to capture the poses as accurately as possible.
Five Mins each
I did three versions of the long pose because my stamina was non existent and I couldnt cope with the changes when the model had to stretch.
A 30 minute pan pastel, 15 minute pencil and another 30 minute pastel. All on toned A2 paper.
30 mins each
The final pose of the day and I did exaggerate the legs a bit and shrink the upper torso....I think I did it deliberately :).
