Pastel Drawing of a Young Man
Sharing with you today a chalk pastel drawing based on the master drawings Jean-François de Neufforge. The portrait of the young man reminds me of the side profile of Julias Ceaser.
This is the final result...
Head of a young man à l'antique. Jean-François de Neufforge
The drawing is composed of red chalk with some brown chalk for the darker tones and hints of black for some definition in the details with the darkest tones. I blended some of tones in the faces slightly while leaving the chalk lines in some other areas. I like the overall effect of leaving some parts of the head unfinished. It took about 1-2 hours to complete on A5 paper.
