Drawing study of a young man sitting.
Although this is a light sketch of pencil on paper, the eyes of this sitter are what immediately draws us in - they are drawn with incredible clarity, really bringing this portrait to life. This well-groomed gentleman sits with his legs crossed and hands in his lap, posed as though he is patiently waiting for something. Thanks to the artist's impeccable skill, we instantly feel connected to this figure, and as with any compelling portrait, want to know more about the individual.
