I draw from live models using a semi-blind technique: mostly looking at the model and rarely at the paper. The work is spontaneous and simple. I am willingly sacrificing likeness for an interesting line, a sense of volume, searching for an essence or emotion with a stroke (or two.) The process of this kind of drawing is a constant struggle between holding on (to tradition and technique and what I know) and letting go; being fearful and fearless and making nothing or something.
