Life Study of Jim
To get back to pictures.
Here is a piece that I did of Jim, one of my favourite models from the United Arts Club drawing session.
Jim has a terrific burly physique and an imposing presence as a model. (I always thought he looked a bit like Henry VIII) In the bar after the session though, he's a charming, fun kind of guy with a great fund of anecdotes.
This was done at the first long life session I had attended after years of frustrating short (max 30 mins) poses, and it was great to get a chance to use my oil paints rather than drawing with pencil or charcoal.
