I needed to draw something but wasn’t in the mood to start an epic project. I came up with this sketch. My muse insisted I try media I hadn’t used in awhile. So I dug around in the art closet and noticed a box of unused soft pastels. I also picked out a box of chalks. My muse then suggested using an obvious outline. I don’t really do that except in cartoons. But the muse insisted. I used charcoal for the outline and put it down on bright orange colored paper.

Charcoal, chalk, soft pastels on paper, 10″ X 14″
