Nude a day 57: The first woman on earth

Pastel on black pastel paper

This was an experiment – pastel on black pastel card, using a lot of light ochres and tangerines as flesh tones. I allowed the black card to take the shadow areas. All the colours behind her are singing out loudly over the black surface. It's good to let the lovely vibrant pastels glow like this!

Nude a day - ending in three days! 

After 60 nudes Jeanie will end this series on Feb 29th 2020.  There will be occasional posts on this blog - some nudes, some other things. To mark the end of the series Jeanie has produced another video encouraging everyone to draw.  It includes her drawing a 2-minute sketch of her husband Nick.  Take a look on the link above
