The Magus


As part of the tarot project, this is a concept piece for the Magus, card 1 (Magician). The first chance I've had to draw at Market and 15th in months. The figure is modeled on an earlier painting. It more or less grew out of the idea of doing a foreshortened hand, reaching toward the viewer.
In the beautful run of spring weather lately, it was a great drawing day. Though the location is especially windy, and the street level dust and exhaust can be bothersome, the surface and space are excellent.
