As you can see by the date on this sketch, (2000). It took about nine years to produce the “Giant Killer” painting. Many times the idea comes to me and I sketch it out, but its a while before it goes any farther. So, you can see it took alot longer for me to paint my “Giant” than it did for David to kill his.
Now, in the drawing below for Mary in “The Annunciation”, the resulting painting was almost immediate.
Many times I like the spontinaity of the sketch compaired with more rendered feel of the final painting.
