Much of my work is based round my sketches, working from sketches you have done from life is so much better that working from photographs, though these are useful to use in conjunction. A photograph includes everything the camera ‘sees’, your sketches record your response to something, the parts of it which are most important to you, a sketch can take you back to a place more effectively than a photograph. This is why my art days and holidays have sketching as their main focus so that students then have something meaningful to work from at home.
