The Hundred Day Project Day 24: Reclining Figure with Inadequate Support.

This is a worked up drawing in pen and wash, with a head that’s somehow not quite, or indeed at all, right. Nonetheless, here it is.  The underlying problem was forgetting what the unfortunate model was resting her head and back against – cushions and a chair I think. So when it came to reworking the drawing things looked very odd; like one of those dolls that had been broken and mended with superglue but not so as to quite look like they were before. For some reason I seem to remember the phrase “quantum mutatis ab illo”  from the ennui of Virgil. Our nice model originally had such a very pretty head.
