I like using photos from Vogue magazine for practicing. This first picture is a hard and soft pastel drawing on a 16″x20″ Strathmore mixed media board painted with acrylic paint that was mixed with Golden acrylic ground for pastel. (I have to mention that the photo is Gigi Hadid by Patrick Demarchelier for the April 2016 edition of Vogue. It is an amazing picture – look it up online if you are interested in seeing more.) The other drawings are small pencil sketches that I didn’t note down what ad or article they were from.
