An All of Man Exclusive

Ricky is an actor and modeled for a Thursday evening open drawing class. Every pose was an inspiration, here moving me to a bold portrait. I chose the ochre toned sandpaper surface which is the middle tone of his rich skin coloring, accented with bold lines of color. But don't be fooled by the attitude as he was very sweet in person. The sand card surface allows for textural and bold strokes of dry color. I was influenced by local Pennsylvania artist Keith Haring in the handling of thick, straight lines, congruent with the form of the model.
