"John the Farmer" pastel on Canson paper

John the Farmer
John was our model for today and he arrived with overalls hat and pitch fork (actually it was a manure fork but I would not know the difference, it looked good to me!)  Since there was a lot going on, I decided to work larger.  Using a 19.5" x 25.5" sheet of Canson warm grey paper I sketched it out and started work today and this is as far as I got.   I knew that I would be working on it for two sessions so I did not pressure myself to finish.   I will work on it next week and probably have the "fork" and more of his upper body.  Since it is not finished, it is not for sale yet.
