I've been on a tear painting to get ready for two shows, and a new gallery. I need some down time. So I've been outside doing some gardening to relax. This is also the time that I take to go back to basics.....I sketch. I do not paint what I draw ...and I do not draw what I paint. Each
contributes to my overall knowledge that I must have at my finger tips at the moment the paint flows on to the page. Sketching is my summer school of observation. It sharpens my skills so I can improvise in paint later based on a foundation of solid drawing........back to the drawing board!
