“A Time To Herself” – quick charcoal figure sketch

Good Day!

I recently completed a simple sketch yesterday, working on developing contrasts and lighting.  The purpose was to render as much of the figure I could with enough detail in just under two hours. I stopped at an hour-and-a-half.  Generals charcoal on Strathmore 300 bristol smooth. The model is a friend of mine who is a native of Japan and she currently lives in Tokoyo. A big “thank you” goes out to her for letting me draw this image.
