The Little Black Dress...drawings in Pastel and Watercolor

Well it's FREEZING here in GA and I was a little worried about our model for last week's drawing class - I don't even want to think about how she was going to pose in that cold studio!  Luckily she wore a sassy little black dress with fishnet stockings and super sexy high-heals...the outfit led to some great poses!




I will only post my two longest drawings, the first in watercolor, the second in pastel on black paper.  I love the watercolor, especially the legs and shoes - just enough information.  The pastel was from a low vantage point - I was sitting on the floor - so some of the proportions are a little off, and I'm mad at myself because I messed up her face at the very end! Oh well...love the colors, so I got THAT going for me.  Which is nice.

Cold studios... been there. Five days before Christmas I worked for an open studio group. It was cold and thankfully I brought a Santa cap with me. You know it's true... if you can keep your head warm, your whole body stays warm. And the artists loved it, gave them a chance to use their red pencils and water colors.
