The drawing stage of a figure painting is the most important so I take several days to get it right.

This is the structure that determines the rest of the painting, if it’s flawed the rest of the painting will fail. I feel the more time I spend getting the drawing down perfect the better the rest of the painting goes.

I am an Artist and a programmer currently living in the amazing state of Washington. I have a passion for art, but I'm stubborn as hell with it. My day is complete only when I do some piece of art each day, no matter how small. "There was a dream that was Rome. You could only whisper it. Anything more than a whisper and it would vanish, it was so fragile."
