The inspiration for the large scale animal drawings is DREAMS.
For most of my life I’ve had frequent dreams with animals, and not necessarily local fauna, but more iconic figures – lions, tigers, (and bears!), and all kinds of horses and bulls and whales and the like.
So I paint them.
The surfaces I’m working with are sometimes canvas, but a number of them are on mylar or terraskin – the tiger to the right and the blue bull left above are on mylar, the fox faces above and below are on Terraskin. Both surfaces I find support a kind of drawing heavy painting style, while the canvases tend to be (though not always) filled right to the edges with paint.
