Figurative

The Figurative gallery is a collection of site-based figurative work from open studio sessions. 

I have been drawing the human form for thirty years and I really enjoy the quick studies, one-minute to five-minute drawings. There is just something about the energy of it. That is why most of what you see is “unfinished.” But is it? In a way, the short time was intended to capture the essence or energy of the pose or a part of the post that I found most interesting.

I have also done quite a few figure paintings (oil on canvas) over the years, portraiture being my favourite.
