Expressive Pastel Portrait of a Young Woman - Process


IMG_20210412_133942252.jpg

Hi everyone, today I would like to share a recent pastel portrait drawing of a young woman and the process that went into creating it.

I begin with a few lines with orange pastel to mark out the basic proportions. While accuracy is important the details at this stage are not as important. For the skin tone I will mainly use orange and yellow
pastels.

I then start to add details and make sure the proportions are still accurate.

I will use a brush to blend the tones together and use hints of complementary colours if I feel the colours are too strong. That means hints of blue in the face if the orange comes across too strong. I will also use some brown pastel for the darker tones in the face. For the hair I used hints of greens, blues and darker tones.

Final result....
