More chalk drawings

1. 'Woman wearing a chemise', pastels, 6 by 9 ins approx., Ingres pastel paper
2. 'Woman wearing a turban', pastels, 6 by 9 ins., approx, Ingres pastel paper

I am using a linear approach for these small trois crayons drawings at the moment.  Also, following the 'less is more' philosophy.  Both are inspired by vintage photos.

Perhaps I will try a more tonal approach later, using the crayons broadside instead of with the point.   

I think the 3 crayons approach would be great for animals, especially furry creatures, like dogs.  Perhaps I will try it out later.
