Her face is etched out in flowing lines that all follow the same path. Her hair is dark and given curls and volume in a lighter shade beneath this river of lines. Her eyes squint and look out, and she’s positioned in a three-quarter pose but her body’s only minimally sketched, bringing all the emphasis on this mostly empty canvas to the lined shadows cast by her face.
