"The Beauty Who Sleeps "

Pauline Adair is a pastel artist who has a WIP ( work in process) at Wet Canvas. I took advantage of this great WIP to follow her steps of this beautiful nude. I started with a sketch using willow charcoal.
Using Art Spectrum blue violet and a light spectrum orange I have blocked in the shadows and light spots!

Here I have worked the warm skin tones with a medium spectrum orange and crimson, also adding colour to her hair.

My efforts for today! The background has been added with a dark flinders blue violet.At this stage I am almost half way there, and really enjoying this WIP. I thank Pauline Adair for the opportunity :)
More updates soon!!
