Another smallish sketch .. pastel pencil on Fabriano Tiziano pastel paper.  Cool colours used for this one and some experimenting with different flesh colours.  Not happy with a lot of the basic flesh colours available in pastel pencils.  Although I add other colours into the flesh the first one that I lay down is important and the ones I have been using lately are much too sallow for my liking.   This time used a Derwent Terracotta 64f it's a bit warmer.

A small recent sketch from a very dark reference image.  She has a very fine porcelain complexion so I tried to keep that look whilst removing shadows etc.  Pastel pencil on fabriano Tiziano pastel paper.

An ..

Just a smallish sketch done this evening.  Had a bit of a ratty week with fasting and tests etc.  Think I'm a bit dehydrated or something .. anyway not thinking especially clearly.  But all is well .. so tests worthwhile .. mind at rest healthwise at least ..  I'm luckier than some others!  Small pastel pencil drawing on Fabriano pastel paper as usual.
