Couch drawing

This is a sketch for an illustration I'm working on this week, for a story about a woman reconnecting with her daughter. The woman's face started out as a drawing based on Marc Chagall's Bella in Green (now in the picture frame) but I noticed one of my bus sketches worked better and a profile better represented the tension between the woman and her daughter. The floral pattern in the dress is sampled from a section of the upper left corner of the Chagall painting. Tonight, I worked on the couch, refining its shape and adding some leg detail.
