This is my third solarized drawing I did since a long time and represents my regular model I know for years. Areas that catch the most solarization are the hair and mantle piece in the background. I liked keeping that one in as it contrasts the round forms in the front quite nicely.
I only slightly indicated the folds in de sheets because they echo the round bodily forms but then reversed directionwise. Besides that I let the body communicate with its surroundings through the absence of contour delineations in some parts so the tonality of the body sometimes runs over in the sheets and background, creating the illusion of spatial unity.
