The model tonight was a new (to me) guy: Frank. Wow! Amazing! Very muscular, very athletic poses, a real Mars-bar with reddish hair and fair skin (playful and silly too). Big head proportionally – yet not out of proportion. A pleasure to draw. The four minute gesture poses really made my day. During the fifteen minute studies, I got a bit overwhelmed by my warm-toned pastels of a warm subject on that warm paper. Luckily, a few made the grade.
Black charcoal touched up with conté crayon. 32.5 x 50 cm. Or 13 x 19.75 in.
