Gerald – four minute poses
Gerald our model is following the grand tradition of eccentric models that have posed at the college I attend for life classes. An ex-army single parent of six children and grandparent of more, he arrived at the college in a fantastical vehicle – a 2CV painted in desert camouflage – and emerged from his car in a black lacy skirt (his preference for bottom half clothing) and matching top. His fitness and imagination meant that when given free reign to hold a few short poses, we were all delighted with what he came up with. I really admired his commitment to this job he has been doing for the last thirty years – in the break, he confided that he thought that the pay was very good and that he had a duty to keep fit and make a real effort – and what a great job he did.
There were some longer poses, but these quick drawings turned out better.
