I have now started to re-work the Penny drawing and have also made a new colour drawing of the, using sketches and a couple of snap shots for reference. My small sketches are often the key and inspiration for the final drawings. The process being I spend time sketching and drawing my sitter looking, looking, looking, sketches are really my favorite bit because sometimes a small squiggle can make a sketch hold the very essence of a pose or expression. I will then make a large scale drawing from the sitter, sometimes it will end up as my finished piece and sometimes I will make a new drawing in my studio away from my sitter. My aim being to recreate the freshness of a small sketch in a large scale drawing; bringing that character to life.
