I like drawing this particular model. I think someone said he studies classical poses and uses them when he models for a life drawing class. For some reason his looks reminds me of Van Gogh.

Today’s model was just fine. She was tall, lithe, athletic looking. The attendance was great, too, maybe about 35. The model even came by and took pictures of my drawings during one of the breaks.
Everything was just great, except that drive home when there was almost a massive pile up when everyone suddenly slowed down, some coming to a screeching halt, because some road crew was removing debris by the side of the road and closed off one lane.
