Veiled Oriental Woman Kneeling

The woman’s body fills the void of the paper. Her body is described in a few cascading lines falling from her broad shoulders. Draped around her neck and head is a spotted veil with the flit of the artist’s writs visible in the rapid strokes of the decoration. Her face is made of a few swift strokes, but are heavy with mischief and energy.
