Two Sad Figures

I had an ink drawing of a woman posing in two different ways. I drew her as twins in different positions. I wondered if I should have saved it as a simple ink drawing. I had decided not to, and instead mined my material from the past and used it to fill my portfolio of charcoal and pastel drawings. The drawing is now more heavy and ponderous than the free form ink drawing from which it evolved. But I like the poignant look of reflection in the half closed eye of the front sitter.
