Chest Study in Pastel, original life drawing female model nude soft pastels


Request a custom order and have something made just for you.


This is a one-off original pastel study of a female model's upper torso, breasts and arms, drawn during a life modelling session in Edinburgh. It was a challenge to accurately capture the skin tone but I think I got it pretty spot-on here, using blended light colours to depict the smooth tones on the model's chest. Just like all my other figure work, it's about capturing the natural beauty of the body without becoming salacious or gratuitous - and, like my other figure work on sale here, I think this does the job nicely.

Drawn using professional-grade soft pastels on textured pastel paper, this has been sprayed with fixative to prevent any smudging in handling or in transit.

Soft pastels on pastel paper, 29.5cm x 22cm (11.6" x 8.7")
