Embrace. Jerry Ralya Jerry Ralya
9 X 12

This is the torso of my model in a kneeling position and throwing her arms up into the air. The «embrace» could be of the world or of being alive.

The paper is the light color, and I put the shading in with the pastel. With an eraser, I «bring back» the drawing through the pastel to the paper where it has gotten covered with pastel dust, where I have made a mistake, or where an outline is needed.
