Female Figure with Drapery and Stockings - the final touches in pastel
I finished working on this beautiful figure with a white silk robe and striped thigh high stockings. The brick red colourfix paper gives the whole drawing a sense of warmth. I love the way turquoise blue pastel pencil reacts against the color of the red paper...causing a little vibration on the surface. That effect, combined with the pattern in her stockings and the folds of the robe, create a truly dynamic composition.
