3rd entry for February 17, 2009

These were the last two 20-minute poses from the night. The study of the seated lotus pose didn't quite do justice to L- . It is hard to sustain a head tilt backwards, and in shifting forms to the tilt I started drawing, her head looks piled up on her shoulders. Also, I notice that when drawing L- 's face, I tend to exaggerate a downturn to her mouth which makes her look a little dour. She's actually someone with a fairly bright disposition. This pose in particular - while she was in it, she had the relaxed, meditative version of a smile, but all that comes through here is how gravity has pulled the corners of her mouth down.
