Life Drawing. Andrew the Michael-Angelo-esque model.

This post contains nudity. If you have problems with this please swipe left now.

Andrew Crayford is one of the top models about. His physique, poses and dramatic cascades of curls are always a challenge ot translate onto paper.

Male nude in the white room. Acrylic on paper. Around an hour.
I made a rule not to use pencils. Tried to make a static pose as kinetic as possible by making the brushstrokes behave like water.

Details of the above. There may well be more work on this one. The background was painted at home around 11:30 that night.

The light was fascinating, the dying sun flowing slowly across the figure.

3 versions of A. Blocking in the figure and then working over the darker colour seems to work at the moment.
