St Ursula’s garment

The main lines of the fall of the folds are laid down in individual strokes. The very short strokes indicating the course of the hem suggest careful tracing rather than freehand drawing. The shaded areas are defined in detail by parallel or cross-hatching, where the frequent little hooks reveal a typical Stefan Lochner feature. While the underdrawing envisages an exuberantly dynamic garment, in the painted version the gown is simpler and the folds are more rectilinear.
