THE FIRST NUDE SESSION WITH MY NEPHEW RYAN

I take really delight in drawing my nephews! They will be my models for the next series I'll make " CASTOR AND POLLUX " , about the classical brotherly love :

"They were united by the warmest affection, and
inseparable in all their enterprises. They accompanied the
Argonautic expedition. During the voyage a storm arose, and
Orpheus prayed to the Samothracian gods, and played on his harp,
whereupon the storm ceased and stars appeared on the heads of the
brothers. From this incident, Castor and Pollux came afterwards
to be considered the patron deities of seamen and voyagers..."


But before I'll begin with the series I want to make another portrait of Ryan in the same crayon-technique as with Mike...
