My model is a professional ballroom dancer from Moldova with amazing cheekbones. He can hold a pose and is so elegant and a really good sport! This is a riff on the traditional trois crayons style of classical drawing. It is done on one of my last pieces of cornflower blue TwinRocker hand-made paper- no longer made unless you order some.$$$$ but worth it.
My husband tried to rescue him from the floral headpiece but both decided this was a more original approach.
