Most of the life drawing groups I work with prefer female models and consequently I get many more women to paint and draw than men. However, the muscular development of a male gives many subtle nuances in tone and temperature on the body surface and so makes for a fine subject. Coupled with a supply of green pastel paper I was driven into attempting this. The tension the model put in his back by supporting himself with his arms created a great subject.
