Usually I begin with the image of the painting I worked on yesterday. Things went well everywhere, but the drawing was a bit more revealtory to me so I begin with its image. However, as I am beginning to understand, the drawings are made to inform the painting ― the ideas I have in my day's drawing are immediately used in the painting of the day. Like Henri Matisse, I firmly believe drawing is me warming up, as Matisse put it, "like an acrobat before a performance."
