Some of my first experiences in life were with people, so drawing and painting people will always be a first love. People are challenging and rewarding. Because we are they, there is little room for mistakes; our eyes easily find fault with a facial feature or limb out of balance. This intimate knowledge of ourselves also gives us a deeper appreciation of detail. One small line or highlight can completely change the emotion on a face, while the most minute change in the posture or pose of a figure will relate an entirely different mood. I hope you enjoy the beauty and strangeness of people as much as I have enjoyed painting them.
