What a sensitively drawn study. He looks a bit of a toff.

Great addition of the white, Celeste! He looks a gigolo! LOL A quite handsome gent, indeed.

Love the limited use of highlights! Great nonchalant gaze!

He exudes a superior attitude. Funny how that comes across in just a drawing! Very good.

I'm catching up--I always love your Sargent studies. And, nice haircut.

This is where I would like a "Shazam" for looking at stuff. Paul Helleu was a regular subject, but has a full beard. That is a nice study. Sargent is always a joy to copy
