Tuesday night lights
Here is another offering from last night's figure drawing session. This is the same model in the "all new" post from last month. She is colorfully pale, and reflects colors with equal intensity as she projects them. She is a perfect model for studying color temperature.
I'm using NuPastels, but I wanted to play with a different paper. I found some Roma paper on clearance at the art supply store and bought their remaining supply. The paper has a nice soft sandpaper tooth but I was a little concerned about the pattern embedded in the grain, and the obnoxious watermark. But how can you lose at a dollar a sheet? It was love at first line. Colors blush on to this paper like a soft breeze, and it keeps them in plain sight even after tooling and rubbing. It drinks up the pigment and begs for more more. This is great paper, and I curse my limited supply.
