Man walking away from me

We used to be rather crowded in the Nicosia studio where one of the few life classes on the island took place on Wednesday nights. However there is a sense of space in this nude study (Charcoal on brown paper 70 x 40, charcoal 2004) which looks as though the model is walking off into a distant horizon, weighed down with uncertainty... some license must have been taken as I assure you we were practically sitting in each other's laps. Moreover the model will have been stationary rather than walking away, although there have been many times I have made studies of models in motion: that's another story and another challenge.
