Just had my second graduate review.  Instead of focusing on larger scale paintings, I chose to work through my ideas more quickly with drawings.  Each drawing is constructed using multiple photos.  I don’t use photoshop - I just sketch - enlarging objects, minimizing others, bending spaces, moving around items, etc. until they feel right.

10”x10” interior studies - from life.  These give me a chance to observe the effects of light on a space.  More recently, I am finding increasing interest in pushing the character of the light and alluding to human presence.
