Pastel Drawings

Hey everyone!

Well, I'm sorry I kind of dropped off the face of the earth on here for so long...I have lots of work that I've meaning to post for a long time and I just haven't gotten around to it. This semester has proven to be a very difficult one so far for a variety of reasons which I won't go into on here, but suffice it to say, I've been pretty worn out from school and life in general lately. However, that's no excuse for not posting, and I will endeavor to do much better in the future!!!

These are two pastel drawings which I actually did last semester. The first is one of the final projects that I had to do for Scott Noel's Life Drawing class and the second is a two week drawing that I did in that same class. Pastel has really become one of my favorite media to work in; I'm able to work much more freely with pastel than with other drawing media...I also particularly enjoyed getting to work in color pastel on both of these two projects. Unfortunately, the resolution of the photographs here really isn't too great which I appologise for, but hopefully you get the idea.

Anyway, I have alot of other pretty major projects going which I will try to take pictures of and post about on here as soon as possible!!! Till next time!

These are really beautiful. I love the pallette in the self portrait. Well done.
