A bold move

This drawing pleases me.
I have just had it framed in a thin dark aluminium frame with a thick museum mount and it looks very handsome.
Strength of design and a confident line carry the idea with simplicity. No line is superfluous, no more is needed to explain the idea. I can follow the lines and intersections without disappointment. The left hip and thigh is drawn with precision showing bones and muscle with utter economy, then lines zig-zag up to a diagrammatic head and shoulders that in turn speak volumes.
It's a one off.
If only I could do this more often and then have the courage to frame them.
