The woman's hair reaches just below her ears and is pinned to one side. Her smile is enigmatic and she looks directly at the camera. The rightmost image appears to be a sketch of the same woman, though some changes have been made. In this image the woman looks slightly to her right and much attention is paid to her hair. The drawing has an unfinished quality to it.
