I see this calendar project as an exciting opportunity to work on a project with artists I admire and respect. I’ve had a passion for rugged men since I was quite young, and my sitter Peter seems to typify that “look” for me. I chose to use such a direct pose so as to make his bearish qualities the focus. Stylistically I’m most concerned with light, shade and shadow. I’m using a straight forward cross hatching technique to create the tonal values.

I don’t really have much in the way of “work in progress stuff”, but I have included an initial pencil drawing I did of Peter which gave me the inspiration for this piece.
