Use to denote nudity/mature subject matter Degas copy - The Tub I

This exercise was done for Don's workshop an Pastel forum
http://www.wetcanvas.com/forums/showthread.php?t=583040

First one is 30 min sketch on brown wrap paper and the second one is on pastel paper Wallis.
Size is 12x18". Soft pastels

I like how it turned out and I plan to do some more copies.
Your C&C are welcome.
The original Degas can be found here

Re: Degas copy - The Tub I

Some precision drawing, Mario! I love that bold texture in the curtain, the 'wetness' inside the tub, her feet, the reflected glow on her right lower leg (even the original doesn't have this, and I support your light scheme here ).

thanks Prosenjit!!!
After first charcoal drawing and then the underpainting (pastels with mineral spirit) I repeated the drawing adjusting it to how I liked.

Re: Degas copy - The Tub I

some nice color choices. I like the yellow on her back that is carried into the background.
