Braceleted and White and Bare

A super, super, super quick drawing (made in under an hour) for my English class. The instructions were to take a few lines from a poem we've been studying and draw the image it creates for us. I've actually been meaning to do this anyway with some other poetry I've read, so I was really excited about this assignment! It's a great drawing exercise.

The lines were:

And I have known the arms already, known them all--
Arms that are braceleted and white and bare
(But in the lamplight, downed with light brown hair!)
Is it perfume from a dress
That makes me so digress?
Arms that lie along a table, or wrap about a shawl.

-- The Love Song of J. Alfred Prufrock by T.S. Eliot
