Our model yesterday for the Fresno Zoom sketching group seemed so tired. Exhaustion seemed to rise from her bones and onto my sketch. She was sitting on a conventional couch but I wanted to emphasize the support the furniture gave her, so I changed its shape to cradle her more.
Below is the first sketch of the evening, a sketch I made to understand the shapes, lighting, and emotion. It captures her tiredness but I think the reimagined furniture and moody gouache paint in the sketch above does so more effectively.
