Drawing Demonstration: Gull


Some of the most common questions or comments about painting we get from students and art-lovers alike seems to center on drawing:

“Do you use photos, or just draw from imagination?”

“How do you draw on a canvas?”

“How much detail do your drawings usually have?”

“I don’t know how to draw/don’t like to draw – can I still be a painter?”

So, today I thought I would walk through my standard drawing process for a study or loose painting. If I were doing a large or complex painting with lots of subjects or elements, I would spend more time working out composition and anatomy – sometimes days. However, for the typical painting this would be my process.
