Waking early

We wake up very early every morning. So we can see the dawn rise over the beautiful valley of Vesuvio.
If the weather is good we fill our eyes with the beautiful colors of the River Sarno valley,
but we can no longer work for the entire morning.
If instead the weather is a bit gloomy we need to work and try to get the lights and colors we need.
This morning we tried a beautiful color of hair resembling the Linda's fur, our dog!

2010 24x33 cm. Pastel and colored pencils on Fabriano paper

It is too early to stop working.
So, since we have some colors on the table,let's start another nude figure.
We begin to fund the incarnate making a simple texture
that use also the white paper.

Now let's work to shadows in order to have
a tridimensional sense

Some lines with pencils to obtain the darkest zones and details

We add some lights to have
a finished aspect.
