New pastel portrait ‘My sister with a cat’
For this drawing I’m only using a green conte pastel and a white conte pastel for highlights
First draw outlines roughly
Adding details : Start drawing from dark tones then mid tones
Adding highlights with white pastel
I have been painting portraits in pastels recently.
This is a portrait of my partner who is sketching me. He is also an artist so we sometimes draw each other.
Drawing process :
Started drawing with a grey conte pastel
Emphasizing dark tones with dark brown pastel
adding backgrounds with grey pastel
painting mid tones with brown pastel, highlighting with white pastel…and finish!
Today I visited Royal Airforce Museum in North London. It’s in my neighbourhood but I had never visited there.
They opened a new permanent exhibition called ‘First World War in the Air’ in January this year.
And here is my little sketch of one of the aircrafts!
Happy Easter everyone:)
