Avoiding Stare

Avoiding Stare

The attempt to be,
and not be there.
The avoiding stare.
Directed like a dare,
penetrating thick

One of my sketches of “MT” from a session I attended earlier today.
18”x 24” graphite, oil sanguine and chalk on tinted paper.

    A powerful presence that draws, then holds, the eye.
    This combination of your amazing eye for detail and his dramatic pose makes for a true masterpiece.
    Really love this! :))
