Male Nude Study Head on Arms

This quick sketch of a male nude model features the model hiding his face in his crossed arms. He is seated on a simple bench or plinth while his arms rest on another one. The study was likely done in a studio setting for artists to parctice drawing the human form. Often these classes only have very basic props as to let the artists focus on the bodies and how their postions could be used in another work.
