Abstract Nude Study

This abstract nude study began in a sketch club session.
Here it is on my easel in my studio.

This is prior to spraying it with fixative.

I just thought I would take a few of the pieces I did the other night and enhance them.
Here's a few of the nudes I drew during the session scattered on my studio table.

These are all soft pastels. Some of these the model held 15 minute poses, then 30 minutes.

Thanks for the blog visit! I love your nudes! Wonderful.
Do you find that the fixative ruins your pastel delicacy? I don't like the look of it and never use it.

Yes it changes the pastel. For many years I did not use fixative at all. Now I use it as I ship art most frequently and it keeps the loose particles from moving.

You figures look suggestive of real people relaxed and colorful. Very nice.
