Sahasrara

image

I experimented with pastels and acrylic together to sketch out this figure.  As I use the side of the pastel it helps me “feel”  the contours of the figure, therefore I am able to achieve a more correct likeness. Many of my paintings start out this way because I like the texture that results from the mixing of the two mediums. I’m at about the half way mark of a 40 day yoga challenge and the name “Sahasrara” is Sanskrit referring to Crown Chalkra (violet)
