Although pastel is not my preferred medium I like to use a variety of drawing materials as a means of challenging myself and attempting to avoid a complacency or habitual method of representation. By this means I also hope to find some new way of mark making to depict the subject. I this drawing of the model I have deliberately ignored the flesh colours and sought to dramatise the way the light falls across the figure by means of the strongly contrasting tonal values. However, I could not resist emphasising the rich colours of the mattress beneath the model to provide a counterpoint to the shadowed area beyond.
