Powerful light

This is a quick charcoal sketch from a live model I did a few weeks ago. 
Very powerful light.  It is amazing how the orientation of light can change so drastically the look and mood of the objects. In this particular case, the expression of the face, the description of the features, and the atmosphere of the scene. That's what I think was so interesting about this exercise.
My intention was not to finish the entire head but instead focused a bit more on the features of the face, trying to model the light and shadow planes.

I remember this one! What a colossal fail it was for me!
