All drawing is done from life, using traditional methods to sight and measure size, angles and proportions.
Much of it is done quickly while some benefit from more time. Pen and ink work is both enjoyable as a challenge and deliberately used to exercise drawing skills. Most of the work is completed either in Daler Rowney black hardback sketchbooks (size A4) with A Moleskine Sketchbook being used for all recent small scale work. Coloured pencil is sometimes added to parts of the sketch.
