Due to the pandemic many artists have found themselves without work, teaching, technical support, gallery work, exhibitions and sales have disappeared, therefore I've decided to offer my work to a larger demographic and to stimulate sales I've lowered the starting bids on my auctions to 1 cent!
6x8 inches charcoal and white chalk on Canson paper
I bought this deep red - burgundy Canson paper with the idea of doing figure drawings without any planned or pre conceived concepts in mind, but then I started combining certain compositions where I was able to utilize this particular color with the nude that almost emerges from the paper.
These are small studies so I have to be particularly careful with details such as the head or even facial features and trying to do that with large pastel bricks that are not sharp or allow much detail in the first place is not an easy task.
I used the blue paper as a backdrop for the warm sunlight that's falling on the female figure and concentrated on the reflected light nuances, it yings and yangs the color harmony from cool to warm color spectrum, the softness of the pastels needs a strong drawing structure as a counterbalance, oh and also this one starts at $0.01 on auction, link bellow.
