Loved the way her scarf and coat collar sort of hold her face like something of great value you are privileged to see. They were both black which made her winter pale skin seem even more the centre of focus.
Should have shaded them heavier, might try paint later.
Her hand was superb, just enough peeking out of a huge fur sleeve to hold a book steady, but I bungled the drawing of it.
She was reading one of those massive medical books, this one thankfully free of illustrating photos. I've seen in some of those books, you slam them shut convinced you have seen the exact same life threatening pustule on your body just this morning, or worse, you end up addicted to meaningless words like cardiac infarction that go round and round in your head for days after.
Palliative care, that was the one that was stuck in my brain last week. Palliative care. Palliative care.
You really didn't need to know that, did you ?
