More sketching...Pastel Pencils

Yesterday when I went to the library, I ran into a small but wonderful group of women who love watercolors, and were there to paint together.I joined them and had a great time...they also told me about an art shop which was very close but which I didn't know about!Later I went there to explore and found all the art material I was looking for- from paper to pencils, all under one roof! I bought some pastel paper and Derwent pastel pencils which I had been wanting to do for quite some time.This drawing is the result of that material combined with the book that I got from the library on human anatomy.I have used a light coloured paper and orange, sienna, dark brown and blue pastel pencils along with white conte stick for highlights.
This is more like the work of Derek Jones ...he is very good at these figure drawings.You can see him in my blog roll.I like his style.

  3. I just can't work it out Arti. You seem to bump into these groups of art makers wherever you go. I wish I could find the same around here. It's weird.

    Like your drawing above :0)
