Nativity in Pastel

‘Nativity’, pastel on brown-toned paper

This sketch was drawn from the cover photograph of this month’s Record magazine.

If I were to try it again, I’d try to meld the shapes of similar tone more, i.e. I would blend Joseph’s black garment with the dark background, and the white of Mary’s clothing with the swaddling cloths.

Baby Jesus ended up looking a little stunned, but that’s like most infants I guess :/
