Life drawing 10.11.17. Man & fabric.

Barry the model has had many portraits made of his craggy, proud face.
I always think of him as Crassus. But with a watch.
It was conscious of leaving the lower part of the painting; there’s a need for more space in my work. In my teens I used to squash the figure into the picture plane. Now there should be at least a bit  of silence in the picture plane.

Here’s a detail of the head showing the thickly laid on texture.

This was made quickly over another 15 minute sketch. The pose has a comic element.

The middle pose is the best. All three of these works should of had a few more minutes work on them. I like the pinks.Barry as Crassus in disguise x3
