What is your creative process? Do you work from photographs, sketches or from your mind?
I work from all of the above! I start the process for a painting by doing thumbnail sketches from my ideas about what I want to do. From there, I set-up a photo shoot to photograph the reference photos I need. After I’ve selected my reference photo, I start working on the painting. I will often add or subtract things for the final piece depending on what I want for the overall vision.
