Leaning Nude - original charcoal nude drawing

This nude drawing is a bit of a departure for me because I left a lot of dark lines - sort of more deliberate than usual.  Also didn't have time to finish the leg - the model needed a break (this was a tough pose to hold) and we just never returned to this one.  Back to the "unfinished" leg, which I kind of like - this technique holds promise for the future.  Well, I've actually left parts unfinished before - I completely forget about it and when I do it again, I wake up in a whole new world.  Kind of like finding something in the back of the shed that I'd forgotten about and then it's like a new toy.  I guess drawing techniques work the same way.  I used vine charcoal on Strathmore 12 x 9" drawing paper.  Thanks for looking!
