(“18 x 24”, Charcoal)
This is a charcoal study of a standing male figure, completed as part of a Figure Drawing class at the University of the Arts in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. The man is a nude model hired by the university.
I took a unique approach towards this particular model, using a charcoal background and forming his image with an eraser. This effectively emphasized the subject’s action of turning away from the light, adding a melancholy mood to his portrayal.
