What fun I had drawing the lovely live model Sake! So gorgeous that even though I had to rush this one, she still came out lovely. I’m thinking of giving her a rainy street backdrop; she reminds me of a femme fatale spy in a drama…live
I left my gray-paper sketchbook and pastels pencils at home, so during this session with a live model, I improvised with NuPastels on large-format white paper. I haven’t handled NuPastels in many years and they were very blocky and hard to blend, but eventually I got the hang of it and something good started to emerge. Not sure if I will bother finishing this one – I rather like where it is right now.
