Bargue Drawing Course Plate I53 – in progress

I started in on this lady last month, but I think I’ll backtrack a bit and copy some of the earlier plates (maybe a few of the ones between 3 and 53…). The shading is pretty complex for me, so I’m going to put the training wheels back on for awhile. I have a tendency to jump ahead, and at times find myself in the weeds as I did with this portrait and need to get back to basics.

How do you manage to go from A to Z in a process without skipping steps?
