I have not started the finished version of this sketch but I'm sure I will enjoy
rendering this individual's facial features. For some reason, I find them very
appealing. In my experience, I have noticed that there are a number of different
types of female socialites. One is the idealist. She was likely born into wealth
but feels the pangs of civic-mindedness. As such, she tries to improve the lives
of the many unfortunates that surround her. Whether she actually does achieve
positive results in her enterprises is irrelevant; the mere fact that she has
tried gives her a sense of accomplishment. Another is the cynical pragmatist. She
goes to society functions but believes that philanthropic activities are vaguely
annoying. The latter of the two is pictured here. As I imagined it, she is shown
walking through a gallery at an Art opening. With an indifferent air, she is
speaking to an acquaintance and delicately pointing to yet another horrendous
example of Modernist art.
