Sitting Man with Inset

I continue to use my waiting time to sketch. Sometimes people move too fast for me. I began to draw a woman sitting, but she was called away and left me in mid sketch. I don’t usually use an eraser, so I used the same space to draw a larger version of the face of my original subject. The term that most closely characterizes the inset below, in which the face is drawn over a previous sketch, is: palimpsest.  I would have loved it if the unrelated drawings on each layer combined to make a wholly different compelling, coherent image. But I don’t see that this has happened.
