On My Easel - original mixed media figurative drawing
Ten days since I've posted! Bad girl! But I've been sketching like a maniac - everything in sight - but nothing really finished. Well, of course, this one isn't either, but it has a little color to it, and I haven't put anything on my blog for awhile, so here it is. This drawing is one that I sketched with charcoal in a life drawing group and I decided tonight to add some color with oil pastels. Don't know if I'd do it again, or if I will even "finish" this one, but these experiments are good for the soul and sometimes lead to great discoveries. Re the orange under the chin - it really was more orangey, but I scraped it off. I was inspired by an actor on TV tonight with this marvelous orange color under his chin maybe from what he was wearing, I don't know - could not look at anything else - don't remember the show - just orange! Anyway, hope y'all had a great weekend and thanks so much for stopping by! Oh and it's charcoal and oil pastel on oil pastel card, 14 x 8".
