Drawings are, in some circles, the preliminary aspect to a final work of art. I, however, believe them to be and end in and of themselves. These are some of the drawings of individuals that I am very fond of. Whether on paper or other grounds, the portraits as drawings bear a close resemblance to the paintings I have created. Still exploring the shapes that form the face, the individual is captured and allowed to exist in the space of the picture plane. I personally really enjoy the immediacy (if there is such a thing) in the drawn image versus the painstaking time of the painting. Enjoy!
