PROCESS

“As with most of my paintings the first piece of the composition comes from an image I’ve created or seen. The original image of the women in my painting, “Vertere” was taken by Chicago photographer, David Stephens. After obtaining permission from David I began my creative process. Starting with a pencil outline, I sketched the main focal point. Next came an oil outline. Shading then followed. Once I felt comfortable with the realistic aspects of the painting I then felt free to add more intellectual aesthetics to the composition. One very important part of my process is to work on one painting at a time if possible. Giving it all my attention I then live, breathe and dream the piece until it’s completion.”
