Woman Resting with Poorly Rendered Arms

I haven’t used pen and ink for quite a while. The face, where my errant pen wiggles blended together, was quite pleasing, unlike the effect of the mass of scribbles that made up the arms . I did not render the proportions of the arms correctly at first and they were not redeemable. I was unwilling to modify the rest of the composition to look like the arms, which would probably have helped to provide some unity to the drawing. Color did not help either.

But, I post the bad with the good and learn in the process.
