    Nice environment! Its got a monochromatic palette goin on, which I love. Personally I just want to see a few strokes of color. Sometimes a bit more saturated yellow ochre or naples yellow in the highlights keeps them from becoming to cold, which just plain white will cause. Keep em comin'!

    The figure study in post 13 is really nice, you should do more! Your cowboyhat girl is nice as well, but the hips and legs are a bit wonky. You seem to have a very nice spread with what you're doing, tackling weak spots and such. If you want to get better at enviro's, perhaps do some more value based studies? Just working in greyscale and focusing on composition, value( obviously) and edges. Keep it up!
    "A drawing is not necessarily academic because it is thorough, but only because it is dead. Neither is a drawing necessarily academic because it is done in what is called a conventional style, any more than it is good because it is done in an unconventional style. The test is whether it has life and conveys genuine feeling."- Harold Speed
