It is interesting to have repeat models. Fritz is evolving as a model just as we are evolving at drawing. This drawing is reflective of his dramatic side . With timed drawings you often dont see the big picture until the time is up. When reviewing this drawing , I thought it interesting that the background and foreground both reflect the shape of the cross
