Using Red Chalk on Toned Paper Continued

On Friday in figure drawing class I worked on a long study using terra cotta pencil, white pastel on toned paper. I like the warm quality of the terra cotta on the buff colored paper. The pose was wonderful with a strong contrapposto.

  1. It is very, very nice, great detail, good use of shading, great 3-Dimensional figure and you are right, the warmth of the piece really does shine through by using the terra cotta pencil and the buff paper,which is one of the reasons i like using that technique!
