“According to Vincent Van Gogh’s letter to his brother, Theo dated 20 August 1882, “As practice makes perfect l cannot but make progress each drawing one makes, each study one makes is a step forward.” These words inspire me. I meditate on it and in an automatic unconscious way l develop the habit of drawing every day. I saw a lot of Leonardo DaVinci and Michelangelo's drawings, l dive in and work tirelessly to sharpen my skills. Earth colors plays a significant role in my rendition there is direct evidence of influences from masters of light and dark in my drawings. Welcome to my world.
