Prepatory Drawings for Durham Bull

          I was commissioned to paint a large piece depicting a noble bull.  My process includes small thumbnails (small,

loose sketches) and   then a prepatory drawing done the same size as what the finished piece will be.  The customers

have a great deal of input at these two stages, and together we choose the best thumbnail.  Before I go on to the

painting, they visit once more for drawing approval.
