Figure-drawing Saints: St. Margaret of Cortona

This one I actually modernized a bit, including the model's corset, skirt, and high heels, to express the life Margaret of Cartona lived before her conversion. I tried to keep it somewhat timeless, though, with the drapery and archway. I like this one the best of my life-drawing class saints.

Intriguing at once, then thought provoking, especially being familiar with St. Margeret. I imagine the figure in the archway is her poor bastard son. This scetch? elicits the sorrow of the situation. Indeed an appropriate representation of a saint befiitting these days.
