Often times, it is the unfinished areas of art that can be just as fascinating as the finished areas. I can see the foot on the left side of the drawing being drawn in 3 attempts. The first time is very loose and quickly abandoned, the second effort is higher up than the third and final time, extending her leg to accentuate the foreshortened pose.
I did not intend to leave this area of the drawing unfinished, but I am sure glad it is.
