Reflected Light

Pastel on Gray Paper
Here's another portrait from the weekly drawing sessions. From this angle there isn't much direct light visible on the model's face. What interested me in the model's shadowed side was the way light bounced from her white clothing into darker areas of her face, illuminating her jaw, underside of her nose, and the area between eye and eyebrow. Note that the reflected light is not as bright as the directly illuminated areas of her face.
