Seated Pose - original oil pastel drawing of a nude

I did this oil pastel drawing on 12 x 9" carton paper coated with clear gesso. The clear gesso on the carton provides such a perfect surface for the oil pastel - kind of gritty.  I could finish this a bit more, but after the model leaves, it just doesn't work very well.  Thanks so much for stopping by!

Great Study.. I loose interest too, after the pose ends.

Love it, Connie! I'm about to go to a life drawing class starting in May. It'll be my first time learning from a teacher in a real class.

Thanks, Anthony. It's just so much more interesting to draw from the live model, I agree.
