Denise in a White Dress

Denise wore a wonderful white dress with
an iridescent finish that reflected highlights
of turquoise, yellow, and other colors.  The larger drawing is in pastel on paper treated with gouache and pastel ground.  The smaller one is a watercolor study.

This was my first chance to work with Gameli.  He is a good model and I found him inspiring.  I completed a pastel portrait, a charcoal figure study, and a little watercolor portrait.

Lury in a Pink Dress, and some watercolors

 Here is Lury  in a pink dress, drawn in pastel
on paper treated with gouache and acrylic pastel ground.

In addition, here are a few little watercolor
sketches of Lury and Sonia.  I have been trying to learn this difficult medium and still
don't know what I'm doing.
