Another older drawing...
This was drawn directly from a bust of "Lucius Veros" (Marcus Aurelius' son, in real life--not in the movie Gladiator).
This image is the drawing about 2/3 complete. I went back to the museum at least one more time, and completed the hair, shadows in the neck area, etc. I'll try to take a photo of the finished piece, and post that, soon.
I really should get this framed. (It would help to find it, first, though I'm sure it's around here, somewhere...)
Charcoal pencil on Canson paper, 12 x 16 inches.
