“ST” This Morning
He played the usual role in these poses. I added the slight smile in the pose where his face actually appears. There actually wasn’t even the hint of a smile. “S” was playing the same part, being lonely and maybe in despair. It’s a common theme and what is usually asked, it seems, of the model in a typical life drawing session.
Each of these poses were twenty minutes long. Holding the standing bent over pose for so long had to be painful. I thought he was still figuring out what the pose would be, when he said that was it.
All are pastel on colored charcoal paper on sheets 18”x 24” in size
