"Daydreaming of Yesterday" - Original Charcoal Drawing of Nude Woman

My friend Jessica is from Sicily and has those dramatically beautiful looks typical of Mediterranean women. My colleague Dana and I hired her in January 2009 to pose for us in Dana's apartment. We worked for six days in a row before Jessica had to start up a new job. While we were waiting for Jessica to be available again, Dana and I hired another friend and later a young Italian model that I met while I was hosting an Open Studio in Florence, Italy. So, this drawing took me the longest simply because I did not have as much time with the model all grouped together.

I am still exploring different environments for placing a figure and so, other than the couch, the rest of this drawing consists of made-up elements that allowed me to place light and dark shapes where I felt they added to the overall composition.
