Artwork Description

This fellow has been keeping watch between the pages of an old sketch book for a few years. Strangely, I think the smearing of the untreated graphite over time helped the picture out.

Thanks, Christine. He was always one of my favorites too (except for that left hand - nearly erased through the paper trying to find a decent one!) I'm glad I stumbled into him again.

I agree about the smearing...what serendipidy. This is by far my fave; I dig the linework, and he truly has a feel of stone. The soft fade of the pedestal does exactly what you like: give focus to the figure while providing some context. Huzzah!

Art at its best.
