I work intuitively and spontaneously in almost everything I create. In my oil paintings, I use my hands rather than brushes, and scribe into the paint with sticks or razor blades to make new marks. In my drawings, I lay down a subtle background color and then draw into the semi-wet oil paint with an Ebony pencil. Most of my contour drawings are of common everyday things in isolation: ladders, vessels, tools. Either alone on a white field, or drawn into a painted field which enriches the drawing.
