Study for Aaron, the Moor, in Titus Andronicus

I adapted last Tuesday Night's model to my collection of limited edition Shakespeare Series prints. In the play Titus Andronicus, Arron is repentant of any good he may have done in his life, but he makes it sound like that probably never happened. However, as often happens with Shakespeare characters, even the villainous Aaron has another side — he loves his newborn son and wants him to live.
