These were done in pastel on paper. The
standing figure is on green Colorfix paper. The portrait and standing sketch are on bristol vellum treated with sauce. The reclining pose is on plain bristol vellum, and was done on a rough, wooden drawing board that imparted its texture to the drawing, unfortunately. I had a terrible time with the portrait. I couldn't seem to get Cynthia's nose right, and the process was not helped by her steady stare into my eyes as I drew her face. She hated the portrait and told me so.
