Sketch of Moira - original oil pastel portrait drawing
I've drawn and painted this model before and it was great to have her as the model again. She holds the pose so well - I'm not at all sure I could do that. This drawing was done on 14 x 11" Art Spectrum Colourfix paper, using gloriously gooey Senneliers. Colourfix is thought of and advertised as a surface for soft pastel, but it is absolutely perfect for oil pastel - its surface allows the application of multiple layers. If you like working with oil pastel, do give this paper a try. Thanks so much for stopping by!
