Fatigue

Fatigue, 16x12, pastel
Denise is a  regular at my model sessions.  I love setting up the scene.  Hanging fabric from a clothes line and moving furniture around is the fun of the set up.  Denise sat in this very comfortable chair and almost fell asleep.  I thought the glass in her hand suggested a long evening ending in reflection and fatigue.
I once again enjoyed the application of dispersion color as an under painting.  Pastels are always fun.  Love the feeling of dragging the pastel over the surface of the Ampersand, pastel board.  It was a fun day with lots of music and discussion among artists.
