portrait

Ira 24 x 18"
Figure drawing is not my favourite activity in grad school, but the result this day was particularly good. It was a product of circumstance. Ira is the only male model I've seen so far, and his physique is striking - "railish"ly thin. Just as the pose was beginning he snapped at one of our classmates for fussing over the heaters; and I was struck with the sense of his hawkish profile which I set about drawing.
