We had a model today that had very familiar classic features. He looked like a model that stepped out of some French Academic drawings. His poses too had that French Academic feel. Reminded me a lot of Pierre Paul Prud’hon drawings.

I heard someone mention that the model reminded him of someone from the golden age of Dutch painting. Maybe it was because of his mustache.

When I looked at him a bit closer, I thought he had features resembling Vincent Van Gogh.

But anyway, I was a bit inspired and I thought that I did very well today.

Here are some twenty minute drawings done in black and white charcoal on toned paper.
