These are drawings done during my travels. For life sketches I love to use the sanguine charcoal and watercolors. It gives a delicate touch to the drawing and a chromatic harmony to the whole composition. The practice of life sketching should be an essential intellectual gymnastic for all kind of artists. There is nothing more stimulating than drawing model, architecture, landscape, or still life in direct. When I draw, I exclude myself from the reality and I concentrate only on the subject of my interest. Only when I am fully concentrated on my model I see the most important lines and colors to follow. My creative mind leads me through the forms of a model and transfer my artistic sensibility on the fields of the white paper. Drawing life, it is always a poetic journey and some kind of creative adventure to try to see just what is essential for the intrinsic unity of artistic aesthetics of the final artwork.
