When I get an idea for an art piece – it usually comes in a flash. I see the whole image including the lighting in my mind's eye. I then make a quick rough sketch in my idea book. When I'm ready to do a finished piece, I usually draw on tissue paper. Then I lay another tissue on top of that and redraw my idea. I then transfer that drawing onto a flat stone, or a special sheet of metal coated with zinc. I prefer the metal because I can draw right reading, whereas on the stone you have to draw the image backwards.
NOTE: While these pieces were created as lithographs, items ordered here on deviantART are offered only as matte photographs or Premium Paper Giclée Fine Art Prints.
