A Figure in Pastel - Magaret Dyer -July 2012
This is a start on my first pastel figure. First time I've ever worked with a model. The technique we used was squint and sketch the figure shapes. Then we filled in darks, lights, mid-tones and kept repeating the process in different colors but within the same value of dark, light or mid-tones. One thing that was very helpful was when you are "feeling out of control" ....go back to refine the sketch, do darkest darks, lights, mid-tones, etc. I'm anxious to finish this. We tried another one in the afternoon where the shadows were not as apparent....much more difficult. Great studio in Villa Rica, GA and a small class.
