Lisa Redux

Lisa Redux (nude study)
soft and hard pastel on Canson paper
18 x "24 inches (45.72 x 60.96 cm)
Had our beautiful model had the superhuman ability to hold her pose for six hours instead of one, and had not shifted her position during the break (and had I been more confident in drawing her in pastel), that painting might have looked more like this. As I'm dissatisfied with how I rendered that first drawing, this is a do-over partially from memory. I recall vaguely that she wore a nose ring that day; but I'm taking a wild-assed guess that I placed it in the correct nostril.
