Milford in costume

Today was a good drawing day. We had Milford in a costume he had created. He looked somewhat like a cavalier. He is a very creative guy - has been both a boxer and a dancer, had a radio show, does creative designs- and today, made a terrific subject. After ten warm-up drawings, we spent the rest of the session on the one pose - with breaks, of course. I had fun again with my bigger box of conte' crayons. I thought the face turned out especially well. Maybe, when some other projects are out of the way, I will do an acrylic painting.
