Harry The Supermodel
2, 3 & 5 minute studies in Noodler's red/black ink
At the ripe old age of 9 being his Mums' model would be a little restricting so I have never asked Harry...Until now! I have caught him frequently, unaware, while playing but he has never consciously modelled for me before.
Yesterday Harry was in the yard playing with a sword and dagger and I saw a great opportunity for some very quick lead-free figure studies. I kept the poses short, concentrating on proportion and weight distribution rather than a portrait likeness.
Harry enjoyed it and created all 4 poses himself, he has also offered to model for quick sessions like this again.
Yes, he does have his tongue sticking out in the top left pose!
