Jim Markle workshop

this was the 1st sketch I did - needs some work
this is the 2nd sketch I did - a little better
3rd sketch - getting better


I attended a great workshop this weekend by pastel artist Jim Markle.

First, we did a quick sketch in charcoal - very lightly, then we used purple pastel to shade in the dark areas.  Then we slowly added color.  It was a lot of fun!

We had 2 models and were able to do 3 sketches. After the 3rd sketch, I think I was starting to get the hang of pastel sketching, but I need a lot more practice!!
