Good to get back to the Punta Gorda Portrait group this week. Cruz was a great model and held still for three hours, not an easy thing for a sixteen year old. Looking forward to next week when his mother will be the model. This drawing was on white Canson paper, stained with dry pastel. Covered the whole sheet then rubbed as much off as possible before starting. First drew with a dark blue pastel pencil, then blended a layer of local color using Nupastels, used soft and hard pastels to finish.
