Small doodle

Just a small drawing with pastel pencil .. on Canson 'smooth side' .. I don't really like using pastel on Canson especially the smooth side. The pastel just seems to sit on the top like a pile of dust :)

Fashion drawing ..

The finished drawing .. added pastel to finish off. 25 x 30cm.

Excuse the old black gloves :) it's cold here today! Once I start I always hold the chosen pencils in my left hand until the end of the drawing - probably picked up a few more after taking this pic. The face on this one is all done with pastel pencil.

This is the initial sketch .. black pastel pencil on Fabriano pastel paper. Reference on computer screen. I may make alterations to the initial sketch as I work over the top of it.

Pencil drawing ..

Today I decided to do a drawing with pencil .. I have not done any pencil drawings for quite some time. Had to rummage to find some decent paper. This is Como paper which is a heavy weight cartridge paper. I must go shopping for some interesting coloured papers. This drawing is approx. 18cm x 13cm.

It's me! ....

With reference to Tonya's comment that the charcoal drawing could look like me as a young girl. I don't have many pic's of me as a teenager but I found this one taken by my brother at my uncle's house. I think I was about 16 here, had nice hair and some little black boots lol :)

Charcoal with patterns ..

A bit of a rough charcoal drawing done years ago .. I'm really digging out some dodgy ones now. I think it was done on some heavy weight cartridge paper. I was experimenting with patterns at the time ..

Black and white sketch ..

Here I am scrounging up another old sketch .. I only have this small image on my computer I think the original drawing actually went to the bin. Pastel pencil on Fabriano Pastel Paper.
