Gazing out the Window

Charcoal and white pastel, on white drawing paper.
I have been experimenting with different effects of the charcoal and pastel. Creating texture and smoothness from how much pressure I apply to the way I burnish with the pastel pencil. Charcoal is a beautiful medium with a lush deep texture , so lovely for skin tones.
When I first saw the ref picture to this, I loved it and could not wait to draw with my charcoal.
