of Abstract Line Drawing
illustrates the way in which I often compose a painting through
preliminary drawings. studying the line movement first then the
balance of light and dark and finally what and where the color
is to go. In the case of this triptych of the same image what is
indicated in yellow would be actually done in gold leaf, as I would
use an egg tempera technique, translated into acrylics and on a
gessoed panel, rather than canvas.
