    This appears to be a work in progress so I will offer comments on that basis.

    Color range on the skin tones is limited and chalky.

    Light direction from the right (assuming a standing model) could be emphasized by a wider color range. Darker darks and lighter lights with less emphasis on white pigment.
    Check some painted nudes on Google for treatment of warm and cool tone distribution.
    Daniel Gerhartz does this beautifully (see photo).

    Right forearm too thin (due to a lost edge on the original drawing) compare with left forearm.

    A background will also provide some context and depth.

  • Nothing wrong it is your perception. It is very hard to bring life to an aerial view because it is unnatural. The second image of the woman lying on her side is natural. Than the golden rule (not a big follower) but does draw and keep the viewers attention. The second image you first notice the pose..fluid lines across the canvas..bright flowers to draw you back to the model. An image that keeps you moving. Yours is a target point. You see it and than move away to the pool and than outside and move away.

    Describe the emotion you are trying to show or the image itself?

    The colors and drawing are yours and how you perceive them the composition is ours and how we perceive your drawing.

    It's okay Elena I don't understand my camera either! Other than the arm like Denis mentioned I think you did great. The color of the skin is wonderful! I think if you painted in a background that was not so dark or just a background it would help as Denis mentioned. But you are the artist so you need to make that decision :)

    Overall I think it's wonderful
