Female Nudity as a Form of Art. (Valerie Kachkova)

This Collection includes realistic drawings of women. High and low contrast, different tones. Every drawing was created using different techniques, yet they all have depth and  a three-dimensional realistic look. While all the women on the drawings are nude, it represents nothing but pureness of the human beings’ existence.
