Pastels in Monday drawing class
Judith brought in some beautiful shoes and pearls that her mother had owned. The shoes were a soft green suede and satin. First I struggled with the drawing, but Bob rechecked my measurements and got me back on track. I am fairly satisfied with the shoes, but I am less than pleased with the golden drape. Also, I must order some decent pastel paper. I got to the point where the pastel no longer wanted to adhere, even after spraying with fixative. However, I had fun and learned more about perspective from this still life.
