Always starting my portraits with a life model, often drawn from my pool of friends and family, the opportunity to connect with someone through the process of painting them is crucial to the development of each piece. In between sittings I will refer to the photo as needed, finding that the combination of the two approaches balance each other out, as well as enhance my experience in creating the work.
