After Henri Matisse: two sketches of a nude girl playing a flute

Copying from a master’s work helps me appreciate their greatness.
For example, this one by Matisse has loose and yet precise circular contours depicting the girl’s body.

After finishing the first draft, I noticed from the photo that the right foot was too forward for balance, so I shifted it back a bit in a revision. See if you can spot the difference (my eraser mark should be visible).

As usual, subtle differences in the face can make huge perceptual differences. My version looks older and sourer than the original one by Matisse.
