Golden brown – 24-08-20

New paper experiment
The other day I bought new paper by Talens (Toned Colour Mix): a sturdy dark blue sheet perfect for colored pencil and pastel sticks. I also happened to find an old pastel stick (gold, Cretacolor 48254) that I did not use yet. In fact working with that stick almost feel like using colored pencil rather than pastel.

Golden Brown
Then I thought of my regular model of indian descendance that always reminds me to ‘Golden Brown’ by The Strangers. She has this incredible range of skin hues: from pinkish brown rose to yellow browns. The aim was simple but effective this evening: do a colored pencil / pastel drawing under 2 hours and test the paper and the pastel. I must say I am quite content.

Slightly Cubistic
I kept the body slightly cubistic and a lot of paper open so the positive form of the body could communicate with dark blue plains surrounding it. As often I used two light source: one articial at the left and daylight that I tempered by closing the curtains. This way I created a combination of yellow and blue light that effected the skin tones and hues the way I liked it.
