The Pepper Jar, pastel on paper, 15 3/4” x 12”

Here’s my latest endeavor in pastel. Every time I draw from life, I learn a ton about line/color relationships and I’m reminded of how important it is to measure in the preliminary stages. The drawing for this work took a bit of refining, but once I was happy with the shapes, I used soft pastel to block in darks and then played with patterns and highlights.
