This is where it all starts, and ends mostly. I've been sketching and drawing for years, ever since I can remember, in fact. From people to places and everything in between. I like to capture the energy or a subject as opposed to how it actually looks, this for me is a much more interesting exercise, one that allows you to learn more about yourself and create an image that is truly unique. Some of the sketches become the basis for paintings, most don't..
