I've just been looking through some of my scanned images .. and seeing as how I've been a bit lacking in content for this blog I thought I would upload these progress drawings for Maja. The finished drawing has appeared on this blog some time ago. This is how I always start with a quick sketch usually in black pastel.
This is the second one with a bit of colour starting to be added to the black pastel pencil sketch above.
This is the third one which I decided to leave in this rough state - it could have been tidied up a bit but I liked the sketchy look of it at this stage.
