Black Lace - original oil pastel portrait sketch by Connie Chadwell

I did this sketch in a life drawing group, where I moved around and did several drawings during the evening from the same pose.  It's 11 x 14" on Strathmore 403 pastel paper for oil pastels.  I really do love that paper, although I think its texture has changed somewhat over the years.  The oil pastel just  melts onto the paper.  Wonderful!
Thanks so much for stopping by my blog!
