Summer Art part 4
Above are my Twiggy pieces. Towards the end of the summer I became sad as I had not really spent a lot of time with water color or pastels, my favorite materials to work with. I was afraid I was rusty and wanted to just jump into a drawing with no prior planning or for thought. I have always loved fashion history. Twiggy, a young model from the 1960s, has always seemed beautiful and like an interesting subject to draw. I created the watercolor on the bottom first, on unsoaked water color paper. The top image is all pastels. I found myself virtually out of white pastel and charcoal, so I had fun with my eraser instead. That is on large drawing pad paper.
