An original ink and watercolor line drawing. A modern minimalist line drawing of a male nude combined with loose abstract watercolor. Called "The Falconer". Inspired by the "Tattoo" drawings of Jean Cocteau, the famous frescoes he decorated Villa Santo Sospir in Saint-Jean-Cap-Ferrat, on the French Riviera.

Done on heavy weight watercolor paper measuring 11" x 14" with two edges deckled. Please keep in mind the color may vary slightly from what you see on your screen. The work is sold unmatted and unframed.
