2 20 minute poses and a gesture



I went to open studio today super excited to use my pastels.  These poses were the longest, both 20 minutes.  I really enjoy departing from realistic color. 
Here is also a gesture i really liked from the same figure session:

pastels, last day



These were my last two in the workshop,  I was VERY limited in colors, so I kind of had to keep using blue, brown and reddish brown for my darks which I felt was somewhat monotonous.  I was super happy with the top drawing.  And I happily learned a lot about how to use pastels.
