This is an original pastel drawing of a nude female model, drawn during a life modelling session in late 2016.

This artwork shows the model fully nude, a celebration of the body. The blue pastel paper contrasts beautifully with the soft yellow pastel marks, with sparing use of black Conté pastel for the darker shadows. There's a lovely sense of weight and mass to the figure, particularly around the hips and legs, depicting the form with subtlety and care.

The drawing was made using professional-grade soft pastels on coloured textured pastel paper and has been sprayed with fixative to prevent any smudging in handling or transit.

This artwork will be despatched flat in a heavy-duty card-backed envelope to ensure it remains in perfect condition.

Soft pastels on blue textured pastel paper (160gsm), 22.8cm x 30.5cm (9" x 12")
