Young Lady Trying to Concentrate

I remedied the enormous forearm problem in today’s portrait. The most important feature in the sketch below is the delicate positioning of the young lady’s hand. Therefore, the forearm-to-upperarm ration is consequential.

I’m having second thoughts about the title of this sketch. The subject’s pose does not suggest that she is leaning very hard on her bent wrist. Perhaps she’s not concentrating very hard. If I were deep in concentration my hands would be holding the whole weight of my head. So instead of concentrating maybe she has a headache, or is reminiscing or day dreaming.
