male model with a beard

Drawing from a model, using pastels, is a relaxing and enjoyable creative experience for me. This pastel drawing was created in October of 2012 and is drawn on Canson ,dark grey paper, which is 25.5″ high by 19.5″ wide. I used Alphacolor Pastels and each of the 48 sticks is  3/8″ square by 2.3/4 inches long. This set of pastels is over 50 years old and I used them when I was a student at Washington University in St. Louis. I finished the drawing using Eagle Prismapastel  pencils.
