Eilidh head sketch
I got a little bit sidetracked and made a quick sketch of the head from a different angle, and was struck by the simplicity of this pose and in particular the arch of the neck. So I abandoned the original idea and immediately started to make a new painting of just the head and shoulders. My main focus was on the shape made by the neck and the direction of the eyes.
