Hi Matt ,
This exercise was difficult because you stated the drawing from her waist and that was difficult I am not used to draw like that. But it’s a good training for the mind. And I want you to share for the highlights what type of charcoal or pastel if you send me so I can purchase it online. The ones I have not good also I found difficulties in drawing the layering combined forms the drawing on the right if you can give me some comments I will appreciate that.
