The model today struck several poses where she clasped her arms, knee, or belly. As she held each pose, her face took on a frown and her brows furrowed. I thought she seemed worried and that she may have been thinking about something important. Each time I painted her, I tried to accentuate the feel of brooding by having her look into an inner place. I also worked to keep the shapes and colors simple so that they would not distract from the face.
