Reverie reclining female nude charcoal b&w drawing

approx. 7 x 9 inches charcoal, white chalk, black panpastel on Canford paper
Here I started with a large block in first, meaning I loosely decided the large measurements first before going into smaller shapes, this is a good way to start if you want to have a general idea where the drawing is heading from the beginning, the tweaking of the small shapes comes later, I like to use a simple vine charcoal as I draw the first lines since its very flexible and easy to erase (I heard many of my students complaining how difficult this tool is for them), then I can follow up with a more 'concrete' charcoal pencil like 6B.
