start out with a vision in my head and I take a photo of the right person that
will fit my vision. For the past couple of years I have developed a unique style
of painting. I mix graphite powder with water. With my paintbrush I stand really
close to the canvas surface and flick the graphite powder onto the canvas.
Layer by layer, shade by shade. This technique affords me both the precision
and the spontaneity I require.
