I'm afraid the blog has been very quiet recently as I've been practising (not very successfully) with skin tones. Doing them from photos was relatively straightforward (the few I've done anyway) but I've been struggling with pale skin in cool light and trying to find some sort of system that works for me. It took a while to do this drawing as my feet got so cold every time I tried that eventually it just got to a stage where I'd had enough and it was 'good enough'! I didn't resolve the cool shadow areas to my satisfaction so there is some way to go before I can put my feet up!
