After the bath

The young woman who modelled for this pastel goes by the name of Neeley Conquest, great name and beautiful model. The pastel is worked on a pumice surface that I prepare myself with acrylic gesso and pumice powder. The surface is fairly textured but can be modified according to the amount of pumice added. I underpainted in acrylics before applying the pastel.


  1. Beautiful lighting Liz and superbly resolved!

  2. Thanks for your encouraging words Peter.

  3. Yeah I loved modelling with Neeley, she is so beautiful, you've really done her justice! Angelena
