This is an original ink painting/drawing from a life modelling session in February 2014. It was painted incredibly quickly, as the pose was only held for two minutes. You can see why - the model was in a very tense pose, arms out straight, muscles tight and straining with the effort. The result of his hard work, and my feverish painting with brush and ink, is this simple but powerfully physical piece of art.

It captures the body standing tall, strong, all limbs flexed. The starkness of the painting, Indian ink on white paper, makes the image leap out - you *feel* that pose, if only for a moment.

This piece will be despatched flat in a protective all-board envelope to ensure no damage, curling or bending to the artwork while in transit.

Indian ink on cartridge paper, 29.7cm x 40.9cm (11.7" x 16")
