Girl on Orange

I am not really quite sure what this illustration is, except an exploration. I saw a scene in a movie with an extremely attractive colour pallette and then later that night tried to mimic it in this drawing.

I worked on the drawing several times over as many days, and I am still not sure if I am pleased with it.

In addition to the colour palette, I was trying out some tests using white charcoal on top of the pen & ink. While this does not work everywhere, there are places on the skin that I find very interesting, as the white does not completely obscure the pen & ink lines, resulting in a transparency of the skin that is often lacking in my other illustrations.
