This page contains preliminary sketches / drawings (in various states of completion). This is where I work out the ideas for the paintings. I find images of artist's sketchbooks and drawings fascinating and thought that, perhaps, these would be of interest to viewers as well. These images are a selection from the sketchbooks. The title "Show your work" is both a "nod" to author/artist Austin Kleon (who wrote a book with that title) and to how math was once (and perhaps still is) taught in school...... where the instructions were to "show your work"..... to reveal how students got to their answers. Artist "process" posts are interesting to me. I hope you find these interesting.
