8" x 6", oil on linen, 2018
This composition was developed with just two drawings. The first one was made over twenty years ago and added to my collection of drawings - ideas for future paintings - where it would resurface from time to time.
Eddie's Brother (drawing. #1)
5" x 3 1/4", pencil on graph paper, 1996
For whatever reason, it caught my eye three weeks ago and I felt it was time to realize it in paint. I made a second and larger drawing, and used it to transfer the image to the linen:
Eddie's Brother (drawing #2)
8" x 6", pencil on paper with burnt sienna pastel tone on reverse, 2018
