The same model appeared for consecutive sessions at a recent life group. She even almost struck the same pose. Normally I dont like lying poses as they never seem to fill the page well. Looking at the finished results I feel I could have got up even closer, so that the head and shoulders filled the paper. Perhaps worth trying another time.
The top one is soft pastel on blue paper and the bottom one is acrylic on prepared paper.
