Figure Paintings and Drawings
Working with a life model – human or animal, is one of the basic disciplines of my work, producing figure paintings and drawings. It involves an understanding of anatomy and perspective as well as observation of the individuality of the model and pose. (As you may notice, one of my artistic heroes is Lucian Freud.)
Most of these paintings are done directly from life, while quick gesture drawings may be used as a basis for prints, both lino prints and etchings.
