The Process - Studies

How I work

After sketching underwater, I take my drawings to shore and let them dry.

Then I work from memory, adding details and colors with my paints.

Once I am back in my studio, from these small works I develop large paintings as I recall the whole underwater experience.

If you look closely, you will see elements of these studies in some of the finished paintings.
