Drawing or painting the human form is an immediate and spiritual journey for me. Whether it's a one-minute gesture pose or a multi-day long-term pose, my approach is the same. I strive to establish a direct connection from the model to my eye. If the connection is made, my hand will follow, and transfer to the paper a record of how I was feeling about both the model, and myself, at that moment in time.
