Pencil Exercise

A quick drawing exercise reference adapted from "Rachel", an 1867 photograph by Julia Margaret Cameron. Second image shows close-up details. In the past, most of my body form poses were based upon my own reflection, so I began to study postures through other art imagery. This particular piece was helpful in understanding the relationships between the arms and breasts with the subsequent effects upon clothing fabric.
