I was walking along the wild coast, a couple were kissing on the edge of the beach, I sketched them quickly. The pastel sketch gives a lot of vigour and movement to the drawings
Pastel sketching and children’s portraits
Pastel is a great medium for portraiture, whether it be in the old technique with multiple layers or in pastel sketching .
I can draw a full length person or portraits of children, adults, animals. I have drawn one of my daughters and a friend’s son with his pet
Pastel Sketches and Movement
You will recognize a pastel sketch easily. You can really see the chalk lines and the sketch lets the paper show , so the colour of the paper is very important. This technique gives a lot of movement and strength to the artwork.
I sketched a naturist friend at the wild coast of Quiberon and I cheated for one of the portraits, she had tanned a lot I modified her hair I made it long and straight and I invented a waterfall. That’s the advantage of graphic art, you can remove and add elements .
