Purify Color Sketch

I’m creating again! Finally! I’ve mentioned before that my faith is a big part of my life. More and more, I hope to convey that in my work. 

This newest sketch, done in pastels, was inspired by an essay I’ve been reading by JC Ryle titled Holiness : Its Nature, Hindrances, Difficulties, and Roots. It’s available to purchase on Kindle if you’d like to check it out. 

My youngest daughter modeled for me.I still need more practice drawing humans, but I’m really happy with the sketch and can’t wait to transfer it to canvas. 

“Purify” – a pastel sketch by Melody Kittles

“Therefore, my dear friends, since we have these promises, let us purify ourselves from everything that can defile either body or spirit, and strive to be completely holy, out of reverence for God.”  2 Corinthians 7:1 (CJV)
