Sample text

Things are always moving or changing, and this is a fleeting moment I'm going after. Unless it goes into a study! Lots of moments are beautiful, but it was this particular fleeting moment that grabbed me and that's what I'm running after. Sometimes when sketching, I eliminate a lot of things so I can emphasize the one thing that hit me immediately. You can eliminate anything and everything that does not relate to exactly what you're interested in. For me, sketching is part of my repertoire. When I'm painting from a photographic reference, my painting doesn't look like the photograph at all, but without the photograph, there's no painting.

A little planning ahead will certainly help most drawings. Thinking about the balance of elements within the working rectangle, the way the eye will travel and rest, and the relative importance of subjects within the composition should be initial considerations. Of course, the most important element to consider — one that is forgotten too often — is the emotion the subject inspires in you. It is around this emotion that the drawing will be constructed; the emotion will dictate what it wants as expression.

What happens when I work later indoors with large oils is that the photographs taken and sketches and studies done just excite me. They don't give me all the information I need. A lot of the information that comes into my paintings was already a part of me, and that has a lot to do with the sketching and studies outdoors. The difference between sketching and painting is the sketch actually gives me the essence of what I was touched by, and I don't care about the rest of the picture. If I get involved with a painting instead of a sketch, then the subject and the light that attracted me becomes involved with the entire world that it sits in, and that calls for a lot of other types of thinking and searching longer hours.
