Triptych



This portrait turned into a triptych as I decided I could not lose the curve of right shoulder, that beautiful strap pressing down against the skin, or the shape of the right arm. I love the way her whole body leaned to the right at a sharp angle. Unfourtunately, the moleskine could not be opened down, for the right hand was holding the left one in a most delightful way, that would have lent a different grace and balance to the whole composition...some mistakes cannot be corrected...

I meant left arm.

Furthermore, the shading is all wrong, I hadn't the time to finish it so it was better not to start shading at all.

A common feature of these impromptu drawings.
