Male nude figure

6H, 2H, and HB graphite pencils on white Canson 50-pound acid-free paper

January 2006

Dimensions: paper 10-7/8 inches (27.2 cm) high by 13-7/8 inches (35.3 cm) wide; image about 8-1/2 inches (21.5 cm) high by 11 inches (28 cm) wide

From ancient Greek mythology, a pencil study for my upcoming Judgment of Paris. Tricked by Zeus into judging who is the most beautiful goddess, the Trojan prince Paris awards the prize -- a golden apple etched Property of the Fairest -- to Aphrodite, the goddess of love and beauty (incurring the unending wrath of runners-up Hera and Athena).
