|Woman on a Pillow|
Charcoal on newsprint
Some of our best models are really good at making a pose difficult to draw. You get used to seeing (and drawing) a head on top of a body with arms and legs in pretty much the usual places. Then all of sudden the model does something like this and nothing looks familiar. But these unusual poses sometimes turn out better than the more ordinary poses, probably because they force you to concentrate more on the relationships between shapes and lines. This might be another one to add to my etching series of life models.
