My drawings are not what is to be considered the central focus of my art, but rather, they are the product of study, practice and teaching. I have produced these works for the purpose of understanding various problems of form, light, composition and concept amongst other ideas. I have taught life drawing for twenty-five years, so the mastery of the subject was dictated by the practice. I have not produced a large body of any type of drawing in specific, but only enough to explore the problems inherent in their production. Many of these drawings, particularly the ‘academies’, are meaningful to me as they represent my attainment of understanding and level of technical ability that artists should become proficient at. Others, such as ‘Chaos’ and the ‘Fall of Man’, are the product of my drive to develop an idiosyncratic style that relates more to the manner in which I paint.
