‘Delie,’ reclining nude figure, pastel pencils on 11×14 toned paper

Head of ‘Delie’ Posing, 9×12 pastel on newsprint paper

This is Delie, a pink-skinned, Nordic blonde hair, blue-eyed type. [That’s where the silly “fair maid” title came from.]

New to modeling and so a little twitchy, yet Delie was a vision of loveliness. First I did her full figure; then I tried the face only, severely fore-shortened, an interesting challenge.
