Live portrait class, pastel on prepared paper 40x60cm. This is Jelle, the son of Annemiek who leads this masterclass.
I made three drawings in 2 hours. The idea was to use layers of pastels and wash it out with water. I prepared the paper with acryl binder, to avoid that the pastel soaks too quickly into the paper.
With this one I decided to stop after 20 minutes. I had the feeling I would only spoil it if I would go on. Sometimes you feel lucky when a drawing works out like this.
