Portrait of Thomas

This is a portrait of a friend of mine named Thom. At the academy we spent three weeks in pairs sitting for each other's portrait. It was a good experience to learn what it was like to sit as a model, and it gave me a chance to work on an extended portrait.

This was drawn in red and white chalk on toned paper. It has won two different awards. It received Honorable mention in the North Rivers Art Society's "Focus on the Figures" show. Also it was a 'Juror's choice' award winner in the Cambridge Arts Association. Thom is very proud.

If you're in the area of Cambridge and you're interested in going to the show's opening (Friday May 20th) you can get details about it at their website.
