Figure Study

Figure in Soft Pastel b

Completed Date: 12/15/13

Medium: soft pastel

Description: This was a piece that I did a while ago as a fairly quick figure study. Each day of one week, one or two people in my class volunteered to stay in a pose, and the rest of us sketched out something fairly quick. At the end of the week, we chose the sketch we thought had the most potential and finished the piece. It was a really great experience! My original goal was for the piece to look sketchy with the green paper showing through parts of the figure, but it progressed and progressed in a different direction. I think it would actually be nice to add a small something to the background to make it look more complete. Maybe I’ll go back and go over the pillow outlines in dark blue; I think that might help. This whole study made me wish that I could just have my own little personal model to stay in one pose for a lengthy amount of time while I did as much sketching as I wanted. Wouldn’t that be something!
