Nice work Wendy! Drawing from life is the quickest path to learning. I like the simplification of the light side. Charcoal is a great medium- is this compressed, vine/willow, or a combination?

You are welcome- my recent charcoal work included Nitram. It is a great material- very consistent and not so fragile as willow or vine- also graded for density. The blending possibilities of all of them are pretty amazing.
