Life drawing



















My first life session using colour pencils and it was an useful experience. I've written a bit more on my other blog but I found that my usual combination of Yellow Ochre and English Red doesn't suit all white skin tones! Olive Brown, a greenish brown was a surprisingly good match for the model's olive skin but I still have trouble decided on colours to use in shadow areas.

This is very beautiful. Great job at both drawing and colored pencil work. The piece is elegantly simple.
