Pastel Sketch

This started as a rough sketch using Nupastels on newsprint, but somehow I ended up refining the forms (parts of it anyhow) and added colors to the background without any intentions of doing so.

Still learning ...

to paint landscapes ... I don't know what it is but it just seems that I cannot get it close to being right ... just have to keep trying.

Figure Sketch
Charcoal, 12 x9

The shape of the figure was quickly blocked in using a cotton ball soaked with charcoal dust then using a kneaded eraser to do the form modeling. Then at the end, used a charcoal pencil to add a linear contour as well as a little bit of detail. Not sure how long this took but estimated to be around 10 to 15 minutes.
