Drawings, Collage and Mixed Media
Much of my output is not suited to the rather formal format of paint on canvas. Instead, the concepts are best realised on paper, often using ink, collage, watercolour and pencil.
Life drawing and painting.
Although most of my finished work is based of photography, I find that drawing and painting the figure keeps me in touch with actual skin colour and how light affects it. I also helps with the discipline of where and when to make a mark because there is a time limit on the model. The paintings take about a full day, which is six hours actual painting. The drawings can be a few minutes to and hour or two.
