Artist's website

"I use photographs but change the composition on a computer. I project onto canvas, trace the masses with a blue pencil, paint the details freehand with a sable brush, and the larger areas two to four times (for opacity) with Japanese or decoratorĀ’s brushes. I often change figures to get it right. I paint incessantly at homeĀ—paintings take up to three months."
