Undressing female nude back side charcoal sketch on paper


Vine charcoal heightened with a charcoal pencil, middle values handled with a blending stick, also known as a tortillion. The most important thing in drawing is understanding the structure, then seeing abstract shapes properly, that usually comes from direct observation, the eyes need the proper training, eventually they start 'seeing'.

Young girl in profile nude and kneeling female figure sketch


Almost a line sketch, with some subtle values added here and there, shapes barely hinted at, its easy to overwork a drawing, its hard to stop when you're suppose to.

"Girl reading a book" seated female nude drawing


Figures and portraits holding a book have been depicted many times throughout the history of art, from Charden to Vermeer, its funny that you don't see many people reading nowadays and if they do its gonna be a tablet or some other reading device, I still prefer to use the old fashioned book as a prop instead.

Crouching female nude, thinking pose small sketch


Quite a small sketch, I used white paper so there's more contrast, its still gestural and loose but each stroke counts, regardless.
