About

...I'm a painter specializing in sports portraits. The figure set against a stark white backround is an important feature of my work. The canvas is treated with multiple layers of primer and gel medium to get a smooth, flat, even surface. The drawing lines are 'fixed', and is a vital component of the painting. It acts as a 'bridge' between the starkness of the backround and the detailed color work of the upper torso, and especially the face where the focus lies. The desired effect is the transforming of the figure..and to ultimately capture the aura, energy and movement of that athlete...
