Lost in Thought, workshop sketch cropped, painted using Girault pastels on Canson paper
I came across this old workshop sketch that I did quite some time ago. This was done in about an hour, which is why it has that unfinished look. I thought I would share it here because for some reason it was and still is a favorite of mine. I cropped it to a square format because there was something going on that I didn't like, yet I was pleased with the bold colors I used in the skin tones. I know it seems a bit "out there" with regard to the colors, yet for me it somehow works. The photo is a bit fuzzy, I may try to take it again to get a clearer shot (This will require some digging through my old sketches, though I'm sure it's in there somewhere!) The square format seems to work as a "save", though IRL I didn't crop it yet. I just might though, it looks interesting this way.
