Pastel Pigment

Pastel pigment hits the button

Given an afternoon - I will draw figures. For a while I ponder my options given that I am working on black photographic foam core. In the end I settle on pastel and array the colours that excite without fail.
I tape down 6 pieces of board and work them in series.
Although I repeat the figures they are always different, I commence using thin grey crayon to make approximate figure forms then with thicker colour I expand on the ideas. Stopping is all important.
